Pros

Varied career paths, engineering, quality, supply chain, operations, finance. Decent on the job training. There is something for everyone, you just need to find it. Benefits are good, but get slightly more expensive every year. Work Life Balance depends on role - as my responsibility & utility to the company has grown, my life balance has eroded.

Cons

Huge company, easy to get lost in the bureaucracy. Company tends to be reactive to employee development vs. proactive. Front line management is not empowered for substantial action, decisions tend to be made 2 levels up.

Advice to Management

Be a leader, not a follower

    Good compensation, good benefits, challenging technical work

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, too much regional protection of work, clearing out of senior talent in lieu of junior engineers when RIFs occur.
