    Pros

    Pipeline, benefits,pay are all great.

    Cons

    Culture is the biggest negative. Unfortunately all big companies with multiple locations suffer from this.

    Advice to Management

    Find better ways to keep the top tallent. Too many people get pigeon holed or disregarded due to cliques and company politics.
