    Pros

    * Collegial atmosphere, mutually supportive and cooperative
    * Civility a hallmark of personal and professional interactions
    * Clear direction and relevant, useful feedback from management
    * Appropriate delegation
    * Resources available when required to complete assignments

    Cons

    * Career advancement slow or non-existent
    * Salaries low compared to for-profit companies
    * Ratio of managers to worker bees upside down
    * Preponderance of males in positions of authority, females in subordinate positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is very little fat in lower paid staff positions, but a great deal in higher paid management positions. Recommend review and consolidation of management responsibilities.
