ProsGenerous financial compensation and benefit options. Opportunity for advancement is available even if slow to offer and with poor incentive.

ConsCommand-and-control leadership drains off ambition, especially when dictated methods only serve to hinder efficiency. Very little openness to meaningful collaboration.
