Pros

Pay was good. Benefits are great. Corporate culture can be very positive. Lots of development opportunities and opportunities to develop career wise.

Cons

Management skills sometimes lacking, employees have many competing priorities and seem overworked. My direct experience was with a director level person that was terrible at motivating people.
