Pros

New CEO has brought back a management culture that tries to take care of it's people. The prior Hurd regime found every drop of blood to squeeze out of it's workforce. The company faces a long term turnaround and has made some progress but still has a ways to go. It is making investments in it's people- especially in learning & development, talent management, and in a variety of programs to improve employee engagement.

Cons

Like any company there are good and not so good managers. Middle management is still under significant pressure, so expectations are high. Expect a long work day, especially in global jobs. Also as you would expect company bonuses fluctuate with company performance and this year has not been great.

Advice to Management

Be more candid on business conditions. Don't sugar coat the internal earnings messages.
