Pros

Salary and benefits package are competitive.
Vacation time is highly respected and seldom refused nor interrupted.
There is a high degree of respect among employees and managers.

There are fewer opportunities for those who are not educated, technical, and innovative.
The industry is one that is often vulnerable to highs and lows in the demand cycle, thus there are more regular layoffs than other industries.
