    Pros

    The Pension and benefits are very good with a good work-life balance. There is ample job security even though some departments are laying people off at the moment

    Cons

    Low morale
    Progression to Management is sometimes based on how long you've been there instead of skills at leading people

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro-manage
