Pros

well paid.
Flexible working schedule.
privacy-everone gest an office (for the most staff)
good benefit package and discount card

Cons

Slow in motion.
Lots of departmental and team politics. You have to rally lots of people around you to get your ideas move forward.
Slow in getting a promotion - can take years to bump up one level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be lean, responsive to the markets, and rid layers of the fake politics!
