    Pros

    Strong D&I efforts, compensation is pretty good, some work groups keep the onerous corporate approach to a minimum.

    Some attitudes are very old school and they have a tendency to use an "all pegs fit into the one hole" approach. Support services (HR, IT, etc) are woefully ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid the equating innovation with mere cost cutting and efficiency gains.
