    Pros

    Large company with opportunities within. Base pay was competitive. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    - Upper management was ineffective and directing subordinates to collaborate and there was a re-org or change in leader every several months. - Big company with many processes that slowed down efficiency - Benefits kept going downhill, i.e. moved over to high deductible health insurance plan.

    Advice to Management

    Use your clout to direct your subordinates.
