    Pros

    Job stability is huge. You get paid a salary while on the bench between jobs, and you can choose your own path, completely separate from what your focus was in undergrad.

    Cons

    Many projects are plagued with inefficient workflows. IBM is still handing out Lenovos with windows XP as of 2011. Pay raises take forever and are based on time waited, not performance. If you have low performance, it's used as an excuse to keep you from a pay raise though.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using excel for database purposes.
