    Pros

    Great place to start career, rotate positions on average every 2 years and learn a lot

    Cons

    big company, lots of people, very bureaucratic, difficult to control your own career unless you think about things 5 years in advance - which is how the company operates. They plan for long term stability and predictability. This is a pro but not the best for the younger generation of folks who move faster and are more nimble.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing while trying to enforce some nimbleness to the decision making while balancing the company's ability to manage risk.
