Pros

Stable work environment. Cafeteria is great. Office is climate-controlled...

Cons

No windows. High stress environment and tight deadlines lead to an employee culture of frequently skipping lunches and "volunteering hours", which is technically discouraged but still happens regularly. The vast majority of employees have workplace injuries associated with their jobs--chronic back pain, shoulder pain, and wrist weakness. The half-hour lunch is the only guaranteed break. Most people have been in their current position for years (aka little career development). Quotas have increased drastically while employee wages and benefits barely change. Much gossip and discontent among workers, both temp and perm. Very little career development opportunities within the scope of this department.

Advice to Management

You are burning out your front-line workers, who are literally handling hundreds of thousands (if not millions!) of dollars in cheques each day.
