    This company does not develop employees. Managers do not coach and mentor their teams. No opportunities to grow. Promotions happen at the top and not at the bottom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach their employees. Do not let employees learn by themselves. Listen to employees, motivate them and believe on their capabilities.

    Pros

    Company feels connected and small even though they are a good-sized Fortune 500 organization
    Pay is at market and you are rewarded - this can be controlled by your immediate management
    Employees take pride in working for the company and it shows
    Global organization that allows employees to grow
    Work-life balance is actually balanced
    Re-focused to boost a positive external image

    Cons

    Company moves slowly at times
    Office politics follows the hierarchy of levels
    Senior management are not as visible or connected to employees as they should or could be
    Company values feel very "Corporate" and sometimes lack a real human element

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved with employees without an official corporate program - make it something totally authentic. If you want to be seen as new and current, a new office space will not cut it.
