    Pros

    High potential variable compensation (stress *potential*).
    Opportunity for international assignment.
    Young, energetic culture.
    Smart people.
    Big time resources available when they are needed.
    Market leadership position makes for a certain degree of prestige.
    You can drink beer on the job if you are so inclined.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance.
    Sr. management disdain for legacy AB employees.
    Much greater emphasis on growing profit than on maintaining or enhancing product/brand quality.
    Low morale.
    Rigid, one-size-fits-all business philosophy.
    High variable compensation is often not paid out.
    Benefits are weak, even though they try to make it seem like they are "50th percentile among similar sized companies."

    Advice to Management

    Stop making your employees spend all their time doing paperwork and learning protocols - they need to be able to do some actual work some time. Show a little more respect for people with families-- people whose family situations do not allow them to spend 60 hours per week in the office still deserve a chance at promotion. Stop cheapening the product - your cost cutting measures will hurt the brand in the long run.
