    Pros

    Focus on building leadership skills. Very stable. Upper management cares about employees. You will not feel you are just a number. Your voice will be heard.

    Cons

    Technical training is limited. Less career advancement. Job rotation only occurs on the top (e.g., Director or VP above), not to the low or middle level.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on the technical training for the employees who want to improve or expand their career. Create more job rotation (for low or middle level employees) to broad the employees' skills set if you cannot promote the employee; this is the least the company can or should do.

  2. True to its core values.

    Pros

    A positive and supportive work environment. Great bonus and benefit structure.

    Cons

    Slow to change. Career progression is undefined for many many roles.

    Advice to Management

    Work on employee retention and enable career growth or you will continue to hemmorge talented younger employees.
