    Pros

    Great people - can learn a lot working with them, decent people development and focus on individual progress, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Backlog of people to get promoted is too big, so process can take long. If you are unlucky you can also get forced into projects you don't want to do, but somewhat inevitable for a big company!


  2. "Good to have it on your CV"

    Pros

    Working with intelligent people
    Real opportunity for ownership
    Senior leadership cares
    Benefits and pay are better than any other company I've worked for

    Cons

    Mental health sick leave is almost obligatory...otherwise you aren't working hard enough
    New initiatives are creating clones
    Requirement for extra curricular participation is mandatory - a 14 hour day job isn't enough

    Advice to Management

    The new performance achievement process is a popularity game. You are going to lose very good people if the only criteria is how senior the MD is that supports you.
