    Pros

    Good work-life balance, the company treats its employees well and is not cut-throat in its decisions. Possibility to get involved in work outside of your immediate job if you show and interest and get involved. Truly global company, not just a US company that operates outside of the US. People working in other regions definitely get to drive strategy and change.

    Cons

    Change doesn't always happen as quickly as it should

    Pros

    Working for the company has been such an amazing experience, from senior level executives to interns within the workforce, all employees are driven, excited and progressive in how they contribute solutions to our company success. We're a company of 26,000 globally, but move at the pace of a startup...and I love that about the company.

    Cons

    I don't really have a con so I"m going to type this sentence so Glassdoor allows me to submit my review. Thanks and peace be with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to facilitate innovation and collaboration. Our senior leadership team is already making an impact, from the new corporate location to engaging with our employees globally. We have an amazing CEO, CHRO, CLO, CIO, etc. I couldn't ask for better leadership.
