    Pros

    Interesting work, sometimes - or rarely

    Cons

    Stagnation, bloated bureaucracy getting worse, infantilization of employees, clueless people can wind up in positions of power too easily (but you probably will not be able to)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and let someone competent do your job
