    Pros

    Great people...solid company with amazing social/environmental missions across the world.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be promoted. It is very challenging for someone who wants to climb. You can do anything there and it is supported, but you will very rarely see someone move to a higher position.

    Advice to Management

    micro-managing kills motivation and desire to achieve.
