Pros

great brand porfolio, ok salary, good benefits, looks good on resume working for market leader.

Cons

incompetent management; the analysts seem to know more than the managers/directors
unethical business practices
highly political, the hard workers are not recognized instead all the work gets dumped on you and you're put on the black list while the ones that don't do any work and just play "office politics" get promoted. Not very encouraging.
constant lay offs; they can't seem to figure out that they're strategy is especially since the competition is catching up
high in favoritism
they don't practice what they preach and don't stand for the companies values
Lack of smart people

Advice to Management

Listen to your survey scores because otherwise you will never make it to the top companies to work for. Reward those that are actually doing the work and tone down the office politics and unethical business practices.
