Pros

Working with very smart people who are affecting the lives of millions of people -- one of the few places where you really can get in touch with the world as a whole.

Cons

Often too many projects to be able to truly be able to focus on one thing -- many time there is too much legacy making it hard to innovate and launch new ideas.

Advice to Management

Get the company structure right -- figure out the role between regions and head office, and create the reporting structures accordingly.
