    Pros

    Very little, good learning because you work hard and you get to sharpen your teeth on some internal office politics

    Cons

    Broken promises, under paying, worst bosses to work for, very stringent on spending, works you hard and throws you off to the dogs....

    Advice to Management

    Go big or go home, developing markets does produce good talent please just go ahead and trust in them, might do you some good.

    Pros

    Large corporate company with small company feel. Upward movement within the US as well as internationally.

    Cons

    Executive Management changes happen usually every 2-4 years making it difficult to stabilize company direction long term.

    Advice to Management

    You have great resources within your company at all levels be sure to include them in company direction, ask for feedback prior to making big changes. Find a direction and stick to it long enough for it to be successful.

    Global company with an entrepreneurial feel!

    Easy to make good changes, great support from global, and external consultants.

    Flat organization drives for less filters in communication.

    Company claims they care about climate but every year is more of the same. Not enough work life balance and too much pressure for the pay.
