    Pros

    They just get it - from strategy to culture. Of course there are variations from division to division, but in general, I've never seen people who weren't doing a good job advance -- not for long, at least.

    Cons

    As all companies as they grow, it's getting more political with time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying newspapers. Fix Star TV.

    Pros

    Good people, good hours, great work/life balance. Nice building, good location in the city...very happy at this company.

    Cons

    With such a large company, it can take quite a bit of time to learn the ropes; processes also take a bit longer than they might at a smaller company

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and maintain the generous work-life balance you afford your employees. You might be able to streamline some of your protocol a bit more.
