Pros

Good educational reimbursement program. Solid work offerings.

Cons

Limited middle management/supervisory potential...you've got level 2 analysts reporting directly to level 7 VPs...nothing much else needs to be said about that.

Advice to Management

Flattening the hierarchy does not mean you keep all the VPs, remove the team leads, and just have analysts with nowhere to go in their career progression. Incredibly shortsighted thinking and then they wonder why retention here is such a problem.

    Tuition Reimbursement as part of the leadership development program is a good benefit.

    Pros

    Variety of work over the course of a year makes for challenging and interesting projects.
    Friendly open door culture within most business units.

    Cons

    Still using/maintaining very old legacy systems that in long term cost a lot to maintain.
    Customers pay for the developers software, which limits our toolsets and capabilities.
    Focus on safety to the exclusion of other more relevant topics.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to fund longer term vision and reduce turnover of development resources.
