    Pros

    Pretty good pay and benefits. Flexible hours depending on the department.

    Cons

    Many managers get promoted due to time served or the right connections but lack creativity, leadership skills or motivation. In addition, continual restructuring means that your department and/or boss can change any day.

    As for innovation, the people who head up most departments have been there for a long time so they have no interest in changing the way things are done.

    Pros

    The work environment provides many support systems. They have people below and above who take responsibility for team success. The training and available guidance and assistance is abundant. Growth is attainable through mentoring opportunities as well.

    Cons

    There are alot of layers and steps to be promoted. The process can be unclear because different people have different opinions on what it takes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to see a more clear process to move through the defined career path.
