Pros

Enterprise software is a good domain to learn.
You can learn a lot if you are given the time.

Cons

Management layer above first line managers is bad. They will not admit the mistakes they make and push the blame down. People in power tend to abuse it. It certainly seems to be the case here. Top heavy. Process heavy. Process seems to be the solution to all problems but ends up exacerbating it. No sense of empowerment. Public humiliation in some meetings. Internal demos are a farce. You may develop a good product only to see it publicly nitpicked over some trivial issue. No, its not Apple's culture of excellence if thats what you are thinking. Schedule is king. Beware if you slip. Constant stress and negativity. No work life balance.

Advice to Management

How does one change the incorrigible?

    Pros

    There are opportunities to do different things all the time. Some people may not like changes often but it affords people the chance to try new things.
    People are available and willing to help you at all levels.

    Cons

    There is no hand holding you through your carrier. You must take ownership of it yourself.
