    Pros

    Good benefits, good infrastructure, generally reasonable coworkers.

    Cons

    Promotion by committee means it's harder to get recognized for an obscure project or brunt work maintaining important stuff than for working on 'sexy' projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something to unbreak the promotion system.
