    Pros

    Great benefits, which is nice because salaries are less than annual averages.

    Cons

    This could have simply been my department, but mistakes were never forgotten, no matter how large or small. Promotions and job recommendations were given to friendlies instead of the most qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with experience in managing people!

    Pros

    IT Specific: Some parts of the company are surely "OK". However, you may spend 20 years trying to find that area that fits you. It is nice being downtown with access to the skywalks. Generally, nobody tries to micromanage you.

    Cons

    IT Specific: If you can do lots of things, don't bother here. They want people to be "siloed" and focus on your one tiny piece. Then you can fight the layers upon layers of nonsense to get any little thing done. There are so many redundant groups full of way too many people. The company is not nimble, and they have meetings upon meetings over discussing how things should be done.
