    If you are good with high school mind games, this could be your first job out of college (if you went to college)

    Pros

    If you can survive the insecure political backstabbing and high school games, the are a few departments worth being in for more than 1-2 years.

    Cons

    You could be in a job that requires a degree with others who did not go to college doing the same job, making you think your degree was a waste of money. Favoritism runs rampant like a rash. If you are not a favorite, superiors will set you up for failure until you are fired. Management is married to HR here, so if you have an issue you are limited to how much will be done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make a rule about inter-office dating (ban it).
