Pros

A diverse set of roles are available for those looking to move within the company.
Significant opportunity to work with other Fortune 500 companies and clients.

Cons

The relative ranking system is now causing solid workers to be flagged as poor performers; someone has to do the grunt work.
Extremely difficult to move between software group brands or to different divisions.

Advice to Management

Scrap the current individual relative ranking system for now in favor of a team based performance system combined with a 360 performance feedback for individuals leading to a blended performance result.
Significantly change the performance metric system every 5 years.
