    Pros

    easy to get time off when needed
    core group of good co-workers
    if you are willing to work hard and make things happen you are given freedom to do so

    Cons

    many have "state worker" attitude, protected by union
    hard work is not rewarded, and is discouraged by people who had been there too long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    higher up management is good, the lower level direct supervisors of individual departments not great

    Pros

    Time off. they give you 13 holidays

    Cons

    Everything, its like working in a prision. They watch every move you make. As soon as you get off your seat they break out a stop watch and time you how long you were gone for lunch break etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue, Moral is very important and you need to stop treating your employee like children and treat them like IT professional like they are.
