Pros

Generally good people in Management positions.
Good investor in talent and development.
Good benefits package.
Good 401k match.
Decent pay - not amazing...but reasonable and fair for the position.
Very flexible working hours and work from home.

Cons

Old and outdated office environments.
Cheap IT and Office Services.
Usual big company hierachy/procedural issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in IT.
Get a 'higher tier' Office Services provider....no more cheap, nasty coffee!
Provide a better working environment...more in line with the modern tech like companies....more communal work areas with sofa's to work, collaborate etc...free catering in office hours.....

    Cutthroat at the top, bureaucratic in the middle, drone-like at the front line.

    Pros

    It's a living. The company is making money.

    Cons

    Morale is poor. Profts not shared across workplace. Internal technology is out of date. Org chart is spaghetti. Left hand doesn't know what right hand is doing. Process improvement needs are critical. Firmwide communication doesn't like to actual work leaving colleagues going "huh?" Integration of various acquisitions stalled. No consistent culture. Loyalty not rewarded. Old processes. Ego driven leadership. HQ bailed on Chicago to more 'laissez faire' environment in UK. Cheap. Lots of inexperienced contractors and inexpensive offshores. No clear lines of accoutability. Constant rework of talent management processes. Accounting is confusing. Disengaged VPs. Blame game. Almost governmental approach to tasks. Units can refuse work. Surprise layoffs. Huge disparity in comp across organization. Biggest claim to fame is sponsoring Manchester United, really? Important deals ironed out on golf course. Overselling and under delivering. Lack of respect. Bad coffee.

    Pros

    Breadth and depth of learning on your subject matter, great colleagues, good management support and team building.

    Cons

    Very fast paced, structured and little room for error. Not for everyone.
