Pros

Large company with a lot of opportunities. Changing sectors or functions is like going to a new company, so you can still grow and learn. Provides flexibility with laptop, and mobile phone, enabling remote working. (Not sure whether to put this in pros or cons, but I think it's more of a Pro)

Cons

Too many initiatives. Some conflict with one another. AGILE process has taken over as one of the answers to driving productivity. Leaders keep "agiling" people out of work. But who will be left to do the work?? Over allocated with work load, but told my management to "manage" it. Work nights and weekends to keep up with workload, to try to maintain same level of quality of work, and not let any one thing get dropped. Can't get management support, because they are either: a.) also bombarded with workload b.) busy with their own agendas, not paying attention to the business/department needs. (Keep trying to fulfill the next objective/initiative!)

Advice to Management

The direction of the North Box objectives/initiatives are important, but would also like to see more support put in place in the subsequent levels of the organization to enable success. Stop agiling people out of jobs who you need to achieve premier performance.Otherwise, we will be a company full of consultants we have to be hired to bring resources back in to do the work.

    Pros

    Genuine people; opportunity to change the company for the better

    Cons

    Conservative company - risk adverse, old boys network

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on building and valuing a diverse culture; this company needs to empower people at lower levels to lead --- this is how one builds experience. Also, it is not only the people who are designated as "high potential" who can lead. High performers and subject matter experts should and could play a much more proactive role in this company if allowed the opportunity.
