As a large corporation has a great culture policy on paper and for the most part employees are fair professionals; however, career advance and daily performance depends on middle management (who oversees the bulk of employees) and in some departments they're not just the best and are driven, sadly, by level of friendship instead of level of competency or qualifications.
Support from management
Turns out it's policy over common sense, not good.
Co workers are friendly, regarding management, it depends if one is lucky to be lead by serious competent professionals
Freedom to work independently
Possibly depends on the department.
The company follows "by the book" communication which only "checks a box" in the process but doesn't mean or reflect a meaningful communication.
Can't tell if worker of opposite gender is paid same, less or more.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Bulk of employees are friendly and equally respectful. There's always a sense middle management feels, acts superior or gets better or more nuances.
Depends if one is favored by immediate supervisor or middle management, not so much qualification.

Office / Work Environment
As a large corporation keeps nice, clean, professional work place.
There's no recycling culture at all, there is a tons of waste of paper.
As a large company offers good benefits and, in paper, shows concern about healthy work-balance BUT facing a personal life issue then company goes by the book and just acts as "a company at will" and doesn't side with employee but with company policy.
As a large corporation, projects what great marketing aims for.
Just another "at will" company, no distinction or empathy for individual needs.
Depends on the department and middle management.
Inclusive / Diverse
As a large company is common to work with people with different backgrounds.
Suggestions for improvement
- I strongly believe policy without common sense is useless. In my experience, HR should be able to promote a culture that favors employees instead of checking boxes to fulfill process and guidelines by the book.
What I like about the company
It's financially stable, benefits, nice work place, promotes good health habits.
What I dislike about the company
It's not environmentally friendly; it's failing on recycling and environment protection practice; at the end of the day just performs as a large corporation with no empathy for individual needs so, overall, functions on policy but no common sense.
