      Typical large company, hard to move up, lot of bureaucracy, limited resources

      Pros

      Benefits are decent, vacation time is on par with industry, fairly young workforce

      Cons

      Difficult to move up because of unclear requirements, lack of salary transparency, pretty low bonuses, a lot of unnecessary leadership positions, too much bureaucracy, the better you are the job the more work you get but it’s not reflected in pay and requests for more people and help go ignored

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of opportunities to move across the organization

      Cons

      Disparate P&Ls within the organization drive poor business metric-driven behavior. You’ll see people executing on projects to help their own metrics while hurting the company as a whole.

      Pros

      Great employee benefits and good relationship builders.
