Pros

Great people that are very committed to the company. The brands are powerful and senior management is very forward thinking.

Cons

The culture is overly bureaucratic and requires a consensus to make decisions. Part of this is a good thing but the problem is everyone is always in meetings which slows down the decision making process as well as prevents work from getting done.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Company name looks great on a resume
    - Lots of interesting initiatives and diverse departments
    - Seemingly a lot of opportunity (on the surface)
    - Decent manager/immediate supervisor
    - Decent work/life balance
    - Good sense of corporate social responsibility

    Cons

    - Was hired for one job and ended up doing something completely different (and well below my skill level) with no opportunity for advancement, learning, or movement into the job I was hired to do (it doesn't really exist)
    - Expertise (which I was hired for) not respected and consistently questioned (not sure why they hired me if they didn't think I was the expert they wanted)
    - Restructuring seems to happen on a daily basis (company-wide restructuring, changes in departments, and management)
    - Bureaucratic
    - Favoritism for opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you know what you want when you hire someone and don't pull bait and switches with job opportunities.
