    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of exposure to senior management, dynamic environment, opportunities to grow and move cross functionally, industry and technology leader.

    Cons

    People do not stay long enough on the same position to add value to those. Reorganization cycles are to close to each other, causing distraction into the workplace. Too much of a focus on the short term results.

    Advice to Management

    Balance potential of contributors with performance
