      Pros

      Diverse, inclusive, great people, flexible working options, agile framework, health insurance, volunteer day, more than average sick leave, challenging and innovative projects.

      Cons

      So many people, it's hard to know who to go to. Some chapters have high turnover. Lots of legacy systems that add complexity. Sometimes you end up with too many meetings and agile ceremonies.

      Pros

      Benefits are great: health insurance and credit towards your bill

      Cons

      - Not taken seriously with complaints - Serious complaints are brushed under the rug - Mental health is one of their commitments but it is not acceptable to take a mental health day off - So heavily KPI focused that there is no acknowledgement for what you bring to the team that doesn't result in dollars for the company - Micro-managed

      Pros

      Lots of ways to learn if you are hungry. Always changing.

      Cons

      Always changing, but too much change isn't great if the leaders are unable to hear or see the needs of the people whilst implementing the changes.

      Cons

      - Everyone is always too busy, never enough resource - A lot of talk about growth mindset and proving learning and development opportunities - Not enough engagement with management/leaders to truly implement culture change in creating a supportive, safe, nurturing environment, and actually putting these business visions around world-class capability via growth mindsets, L&D into action - Job security, regular restructures
