    There are many good people and we have a lot of fun working together. There are plenty of opportunities to work on complex projects that challenge you and allow you to grow.

    Being such a large company, it can take a while to get things done and projects approved. Also, can take a while for a new employee to find their way in such a large organization.

    Find ways to better identify employees motivations and capabilities. Look to identify the high-performers early and leverage this faster so they don't get lost in the masses, potentially losing them to another company.
