Pros

Possible to telecommute depending on job type
Has all of the infrastructure and tools that come with a large company

Cons

Pigeon hole people making it difficult to move to a different area
Matrixed meaning that people management is separate from management of the work -- so often the person handling your salary doesn't understand what you actually do for a liviing

Advice to Management

Stop the RIF insanity
