What I like about the company

My department is very understanding if you need personal time off for any reason. That aligns with the company views of work-life balance. Their pay and incentives are progressive and they offer a wide variety of benefits

What I dislike about the company

It can be very bureaucratic but i feel like thats expected of a multinational, multibillion dollar company
