    Pros

    Strong brand name on resume, great work-life balance, benefits are good. Gym on site and pension available for those hired before this year. Turning it around financially as well. Global powerhouse.

    Cons

    It can be too big and too political. Hard to get decisions made because of how highly matrix it is. Pay is just okay. They need to reduce the amount of meetings, way too much.

    Advice to Management

    Retain and promote good talent. It's a hot market so $ will dictate if you stay or not.

    Pros

    Great company, big name... experience really depends on your team. Learning options are enormous. A lots of training available through internet and on site.

    Cons

    Management treats employees as disposable and selling them with the division. A lot of politics and "who you know" to get career progression and the role you deserve

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and ethical with employee rotations. Please treat people as people not just human assets
