Don't throw the book at people if they have one bad week and let people move up if they are qualified.

    Pros

    Great place to learn about how to develop software, and how to support it. Learn what it means to be customer focused.

    Cons

    You have two choices: Burn out with over-work, or play politics to save your skin. Promotions are based on favoritism in many cases.
    If you complain to HR about abuse from upper management, be sure they will rat on you and collude to destroy you. Leave before it gets to that.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees
