Pros

- Work life balance
- Flexible work schedules
- Campus accommodations (soccer field, baseball field, tennis courts, gym)
- Growth opportunities outside of normal job description

Cons

- Promotion opportunities are limited to once per year, company wide. If you don't get promoted then, you have to wait an entire year for the next opportunity. This makes employees severely discouraged about their career advancement opportunities if you don't want to wait an entire year just to be considered again.

- I've heard starting salaries are generally mid-range to mid-high, but after you're in, salary increases are very minimal

Advice to Management

Don't have promotions based on a schedule. It's incredibly demoralizing to employees.
