Pros

-work/life balance
-tons of opportunities to move upwardly and laterally if you work in headquarters

Cons

At an organization with 30,000+ employees, it's a crapshoot on whether you'll land in a fulfilling job with a great manager. I hit both at my first job at Aetna. But when it came to my second job, what looked like a promotion in business operations, actually turned out to be a dud.
Also, it is super boring, especially if you work in headquarters, where the culture is stuffy and conservative.

Advice to Management

Develop your best talent! Groom them, give them stretch assignments, introduce them -- help them grow!
