    Pros

    Changing in the right direction. It is starting to be quite strategic. There is a lot of energy to innovate.

    Cons

    It is a large org. It can be daunting to make effective changes to process. There is politics. Too many people, levels make decisions. This needs to be streamlined..

    Advice to Management

    Have a real vision. Triple zero is not a vision. It is more a mission. The brand / marketing teams need to think more than 6 months out and be more strategic.

    Pros

    The people in senior leadership positions are genuinely good human beings. It's clear that GM does a great job of developing and promoting promising leaders who will create a great company culture.

    Salaries, bonuses, and vacation policies are very generous and there are plenty of opportunities for career development.

    The company is extremely supportive of women in tech and the percentage of female leaders at every level is higher than any tech company I've ever worked at; lots of fantastic mentors and role models.

    Cons

    All the usual hassles of working at a huge company: endless meetings, tedious reviews and approvals necessary to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in fun and social workplace activities. A little bit of team bonding goes a long way.
