    Great brand
    Remarkable talent
    Smart, honest, hard-working people

    Cons

    The usual trappings of large corporate in terms of processes, cost cutting, managing the matrix, moving up the ladder, internal comms etc

    Give opportunities to younger staff, allow them to take bigger roles and move across teams
    Loosen the purse a bit
