    Pros

    Easy to do work, very relaxed. Very good at teaching life lessons of how to do things badly so that you can avoid those mistakes yourself.

    Cons

    Far too much bureaucracy to get things done. There is a culture of protecting one's own backside rather than committing to get things done. Lack of recognition, reward or compensation for hard work. New recruits on better pay than experienced resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kudos to looking at if salaries match the job codes. However, that doesn't address if job roles match the job codes. There is a serious lack of innovation and a culture that encourages the surfacing of innovative ideas.
