Pros

fair pay and benefits, I felt that there was opportunity to move around the organization up or sidways, good work/life balance, met more good people than bad

Cons

need i say portfolio management?; there was a committee for everything, which allowed process to get in the way of needed changes/upgrades/etc.

Advice to Management

Management at least made us believe, for the most part, that we mattered, but the the funny thing is that the retail business seemed to be well run and controlled, but that the same discipline didn't seem to exist in the other half of the business for whatever reason.
