    Pros

    Big company with resources to do things when they want to do them. Huge companies as customers. Some very smart people.

    Cons

    Most of the structure is designed to block bad things rather than enable good things. People have a bias for conflict and pushback rather than cooperation and collaboration. The multidimensional matrix organisation is a nightmare. Demands are great, support is weak. Sink or swim. Terrible experience.

    Advice to Management

    Create a collaborative culture, encourage cooperation, develop an environment of appreciation and kindness.
