    Pros

    Great working experiences, smart people, great pay and benefits. Wonderful cross-functional support and teamwork. Exiting company to work for.

    Cons

    Giant company = giant bureaucracy and limited scope. As far as your workplace experience, your mileage will vary, depending on what group you work in and who you work for. There are some wonderful leaders in upper mgt, and also some who really don't deserve to be there. Most higher ranking positions are increasingly filled externally, rather than promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    I consistently see poor decisions made by upper management and executives due to the fact that many of them do not understand the repercussions at the working level. In such a large company, executives can easily be removed from the reality and consequences of their decisions. This can be fixed through better information sharing through the ranks, as well as a commitment to internal promotions, rather than external hires into the higher ranking positions.

    Pros

    Very good benefits;
    seemingly capable senior management;
    workers have offices.

    Cons

    Lower salaries and small raises/bonuses with no explanation for the reasons behind them;
    doesn't promote fairness and respect among employees, very slow/ineffective in resolving employee personality issues/conflicts inside groups which allows the situation to affect performance of individuals other than goup;
    individuals having personal issues constantly allowed to display disruptful behavoir and play politically against others to get rid of those who she dislikes, such as getting other employees submit bad reviews and managers taking these reviews as truthful without getting to understand the situation better;
    employees promoted based on attributes other than their merit.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't seem to need it as it's been disregarded in the past.
