    Pros

    - a good health insurance;
    - salary.
    - no impacts in the personal life

    Cons

    - an IT manager who is not a leader, he's a boss;
    - an IT manager who makes threats of resignation to the team is not a leader;
    - the company has the educational benefit but the IT manager puts barriers due to budget and does not encourage the team in no time;
    - an IT manager who tells the team that does not trust anyone from his team;
    - They hire in a function but we work doing things not compatible with our career or our area. Sample: they hire a analyst from IT but you need to work in accounting area, financial area, or make some works not from the area (You are an IT analyst and works as Administrator) etc.
    There are a lot cons points but will be a very huge list.

    Advice to Management

    change the manager described in Cons
