    Pros

    Job stability is good, pay is good (if you rank well), retirement plan is good

    Cons

    Not really enjoyable to work in such a stuffy environment. Everyone walks on egg shells, so as not to ruin their ranking. People also push pet projects that may not actually be beneficial, but look good for ranking.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of forced ranking and see how much more productive people become.

    Pros

    * Salary
    * Size helps when working w/ vendors and third parties - a lot of weight to swing around.

    * 401k matching

    Cons

    * Leadership framework incentivizes selfish and poor behavior from those seeking to climb the corporate ladder
    * Organization does not actively shed dead weight as frequently as it should. There are too many people sitting around collective paychecks.
    * Lack of vision/strategy across several of the major business lines.
    * Lack of solid, well-communicated vision/strategy for the corporation as a whole
    * Annual performance evaluation process incentivizes bad behavior, demoralizes large percentages of the employee population, and is overly time-consuming to administer.

    Advice to Management

    * Redesign & modernize employee evaluation process
    * Redesign & modernize leadership framework
    * Redesign & modernize business practices, corporate vision, and strategy
