      Large company with small company values

      Pros

      I have loved the flexibility on dealing with the pandemic, making sure things were least disruptive as possible. Competitive pay, (depending on the department). Encouraging of receiving feedback for improvement, open door policy, great relocation options when needed. Overall, been a great experience and hope to retire here. For those that were impacted by job eliminations, significant advance notice was given with a gratuitous compensation package, and resources to find another role within the organization, and outside the organization.

      Cons

      Benefit options have declined over the past few years with additional cost, and less options. Work life balance is a struggle in my division. Almost everyone I work with directly or indirectly put's in well more than their normal workday hours to meet demand. This use to be less frequent, but with the lack of resources, it has become more common than not to put in extra hours to meet service level, and demand.

      Pros

      Great culture, Interesting work, Stable work life balance

      Upper Management subjects their peers to corporate politics, boss mentality, old school rule with iron fist approach to management. It puts a stain on the culture but the employees make up for that.

      Pros

      Cons

      Will work you til you quit, Super High Turnover, Multiple Restructures within Short Time. Very hard to move up, a very long line of people all looking for same thing. Work life balance does not exist. You will work all day every day or get too far behind to where it is not manageable.

      Great company depending on where you are

      Pros

      - Work/Life Balance - Laid back atmosphere

      Cons

      While the over all majority of the company seems to have the pros listed there are silos within the company and projects that can be an absolute nightmare to work on. They say your pay is based on your role but often times you can find your self doing a role in a pay band lower than it should be.
