    Pros

    Competitive pay as long as you negotiate when you start. Don't count on much after that. If you just want stability with no chance for advancement then this is the place. I shouldn't say that if you are a kiss up and self promoting backstabbing SOB then you'll be promoted. Management seems to promote incompetence and unethical behavior.

    Cons

    Don't expect management to have a clue about what it takes to do your job. If you want to succeed make your boss look really good and do anything he/she asks no matter how far outside your job scope and responsibilities it is. They love a good suck up. You'll get promoted and expected to work even harder to cover your bosses mistakes. If you have a good idea that could help the company, expect to have to explain it in one sentence. Managements attention span is about 60 seconds and they are usually deciding what you are saying within the first three words. Otherwise, just keep it to yourself. If you make it happen without there knowledge they will either take credit for it or forget somehow you did it. Don't expect any strategic direction here it's all reactive and tactical.

    Advice to Management

    If you weren't so busy self promoting yourselves and keeping the most competent people down for fear of how they would make you look you might be more successful. I know it's tough dealing with the pompous french who don't have a clue and dictate what to do no matter how stupefying it is. But that doesn't mean you have to sink to their level of ignorance.
