    Pros

    Work from home is common and allowed, opportunities for exposure exist but you do have to pursue yourself, great benefits, senior management have regular skip-level meetings and take feedback to heart

    Cons

    When they say your career is in your hands, they really mean it. There is NO help in advancement or mentoring or learning.

    Advice to Management

    This company has very long tenure employees, so the loyalty is there. You need to cultivate the ambition in eager employees because they are leaving to find it elsewhere and you are left with the long-term, lazy, coasting people that don't learn new skills.

    Pros

    Good large company environment, with good structure.
    The technology is up to date, you can work remote and can get done all in short time.
    People are there mostly for many years and they know what they're doing.
    I love the large cafeteria, free large parking lots, beautiful walk around areas where people use to go out at lunch and walk. They have great volunteering options and networking, support groups.
    Great benefits, very difficult to match anywhere else.
    People that I work with are very talented at what they do and I learnt a lot from them. They are

    Cons

    Very little opportunities to grow. Once you get to certain senior level, it's getting more and more difficult to move around. People are there for a very long time and they are not moving anywhere.
