    Pros

    Telecommuting possibilities - depending on the position and the manager

    Cons

    Constant business reorgs (annually in Aug, announced in Nov), layoffs, and reposting the same position, creating distrust and instability.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of leadership, using business reorgs and corresponding layoffs (and then reposting the slightly revised position) causes instability, distrust, and constant relearning of the same job. Get good leaders in place who are rewarded by true results not just the constant motion of unnecessary change designed to look like progress, but nothing good results. Beware especially of those ex-consultants who become VPs and then hire their old companies (McKinsey) in large consulting engagements while laying off staff and reposting their positions.

    Pros

    Good balance between work and life. The benefits provided by the company are competitive.. Options to work from home.

    Cons

    There are not very many cons - if any that I can think of - other that the typical large company reorganization.
