    Pros

    Many bright and motivated employees who tend to stay long-term. Good senior management. Due to the older average age of the workforce, there will be strong opportunities for advancement for employees perceived to be competent and energetic.

    Cons

    Average pay is slightly less than companies of comparable size, but this is offset by very strong benefits package. Organizational structure tends to create a "silo" mentality. Regulatory environment can be difficult to navigate, and new rules are the result of regrettable actions by senior managers who have been forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to subject matter expertise when hiring for managerial roles. The current mentality is to assume that most manager positions are "plug and play" with most people from top-tier MBA programs having equal potential. Managers who are put into new roles without a good understanding of with what their direct reports do tend to lower team morale.
