    Pros

    Global company with a good reputation.
    Employees are empowered.
    For few work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    Org changes every 6 months to a year.
    A lot of moving parts and takes time to get anything done.
    Not good at planning and creating opportunities for employees.
    Resource planning needs lot of improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to lower levels of the organization to know what is actually happening and gather feedback.

    Pros

    generous parental leave, company genuinely seems to care for employees

    Cons

    As part of an acquisition, we were never really rolled into the TR family. Too many upper management changes and a lack of solid communication from the top down. Too great an expectation to "manage up". People are promoted into roles but not compensated accordingly (compared to if hired into that role externally) due to company policy of limiting pay adjustments regardless of role transition.

    Advice to Management

    Policies are great, but don't be a slave to them. Have flexibility to keep valuable employees. Don't be afraid to get rid of employees who do not contribute - it puts added pressure on those who do/can perform. You will keep losing top talent expecting them to pick up the slack.

    Pros

    Good benefits package and a lot of emphasis put on work-life balance.

    Cons

    TR has always been in a constant state of change (tinkering is a more accurate description) however the Blackstone announcement is seismic in comparison and has created an awful lot of fear, uncertainty and doubt. The brain drain has started and in some cases welcomed.

    Advice to Management

    I hope the decision to sell a majority stake in F&R was the right one. Not just for the Exec Level but those at the bottom, without whom there would be no company.
