Pros

Great Benefits. Expensive but excellent choices. The perks are nice too... lots of nice to haves. If your in a small area, really good at your job you can stay in the position forever. There are hardly and terminations for cause.

Cons

People stay in their jobs for too long so there's very new talent. It's not unusaual to see employees celebrating 30,35 years and have 6 or 7 of these within one department. This makes it very difficult to move around within the company at mid-management levels. Also posting into new positions is almost impossible. Hiring managers already have a candidate identified and will interview others just as a matter of process. It's very easy to get stuck in a position and have no where to go except to leave the company.

Advice to Management

Create some structured career paths so that employees are not sitting in the same positions for 30+ years. Cross train, rotate people etc.

    Pros

    work-life balance, flexibility, clear understanding of my responsibilities

    Cons

    my group was limited in the junior associate roles, while being very top-heavy, a lot of work was being delegated to the younger associates but since there was a shortage of employees on the bottom of the totem pole, most junior-level associates felt like they had too much work.

    Nice place to work, but lots of bureaucracy and clique mentality in some areas

    Pros

    Great overall pay and benefits. Nice mission

    Cons

    Employee may easily hit the glass ceiling. Extremely risk averse. Slow ship to turn. Managed to a next quarter and keeps changing goals faster than employees learn the previous ones.

    Advice to Management

    Take a chance on your employees for advancement
