    Pros

    Pays well, opportunity for travel

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and boring. Focus on process rather than product. Best to do nothing rather than do something wrong. The secret to success is to be totally hands off. Overrun with administrators and advisors. For every person doing work, there is someone watching them. Over the years they have become erratic. At one point they set long term strategies, now they seem to swing wildly. One day it's an extreme process orientation, next day, cut costs, next day security and controls.

    - Excellent career development program
    - Good benefits
    - Well managed company with excellent employees

    Cons

    - The forced ranking system is abusive to its employees (gets worse the longer you work there)

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your employees and get rid of forced ranking
