Pros

Great benefits, good work / life balance, career growth potential, healthy work environment, great office options including company store, Carabou Coffee, free fruit and milk. There are so many areas of the company that would be good to work for, depending on your skill set and aspirations, it could be the place for you. A big company makes you have to work hard if you have any hope of being promoted. Tuition reimbursment is great, as well.

Cons

Too much corporate politics (which you'd get anywhere, though), turnover is high within the company, parking can be rough, always facing reorgs and change management,

Advice to Management

More communication to middle management and all employees, working at such a big company can cause communication to suffer

    Pros

    The free coffee in the C building is pretty good.

    Cons

    Management cares only about the appearance of things and not for real suggestions for improving processes. Promotions and advancement are not based on ability and people magically appear in higher positions when no one else knew that a position was open.
    Compensation and pay raises are too closely tied to an immediate supervisor's personal opinion of an employee. Despite the fact that the reviews are supposed to be objective and based on facts, when managers fail to follow this procedure, there is no recourse.
    I had a rotating array of at least half a dozen people to whom I reported to at any given moment.

    Advice to Management

    Cull the herd of numerous middle managers that contribute nothing to the company other than filling chairs in constant and unnecessary meetings.
    Institute procedures to allow employees to have a voice in the review of management.

    Pros

    It's a stable company. There are many opportunities to move around in the company and there are a lot of challenges.

    Cons

    Huge and bureucratic. The same projects and products get implemented over and over again in slightly different ways. Every manager fights for a bigger slice of the pie by promising the world without regards to whether or not the team can deliver. Almost no-one knows enough about what they are supposed to be doing to do it effectively. Those that are in the know hoard information.

    Advice to Management

    Implement programs to develop your existing staff rather than always looking to outsourcing/offshoring to cut costs. There is vast waste and duplication of effort at TR and this problem will not go away until there is concentrated effort on addressing the issue.
