Pros

Great place to learn, excellent training, very high quality people with strong integrity. Opportunity to work on great businesses both big and small. Great profit sharing program and compensation programs are very fair.

Cons

Takes too long to get promoted, and promotions feel like they're based on personal connections in the "boys network" vs. actual results delivered. Culture is becoming more cut-throat as a result. Also, drive towards efficiency is killing creativity. Marketers are becoming process owners and paper pushers rather than developing creative mastery.

Advice to Management

Be more consistent about the criteria for promotion so that it's about what you do rather than who you know or work with. Stop making Marketing the "catch all" for whatever work other functions don't want to do any more.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    You get a Phd in Marketing and understanding of how to run a business. True consumer understanding and abilities to develop long term campaigns is a big plus.

    Cons

    It's a giant company with many layers of management and slow timing from lower levels to director. Once hit director level your viability to available jobs is extremely limited, you are placed for assignments vs. directing your career yourself.

    Advice to Management

    In order to continue to recruit, retain, and develop talent there needs to be the right mix of levels and the right mix of compensation.
