      Pros

      Great benefits, process driven (expectations clear)

      Cons

      Decisions impacting team (and ultimate lay offs) made by upper level management without even knowing what role contributed and valued added. Global survey conducted annually included extremely vague questions, nothing that would provide specific feedback. No opportunity for advancement unless willing to relocate and work in CA or Canada.
