    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, lots of resources, good products, inclusion and diversity are excellent.

    Cons

    The big corporate mentality is present in the divisional leadership; rotating leadership and ever-changing priorities. Focus on cost-out initiatives is excessive, especially for smaller facilities. Inconsistent culture from one facility to the next.

    Spend some time focusing on cost out at the corporate level; minimize the swinging door of management/leadership.
