    Pros

    Exciting, great industry, excellent leadership, fast-paced, global, investing more in the future.

    Cons

    Big meritocracy; must love being measured for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognzing good performers outside of the normal performance process. More at-a-boys and at-a-girls go a long way.

  2. Solid stable company that sometimes can't get out of its own way with lots of meetings and process.
