    Pros

    Management knows how to make you feel like your career development is on track, and the company is at the forefront of industry in technology development.

    Cons

    However, there are some departments where politics overshadows hard work. For some people you have to show that you can do the work of a higher position before being promoted. For others, this isn't the case. Management wants to place people who aren't ready for management in those roles simply because they play golf with the right people. In some departments, women have to work harder to prove themselves worthy of a promotion or leadership experience than the men who do the same job.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally and take the politics out of it.
