Pros

Corporate Staff:
Prides itself on diversity
Flexibility
Good work life balance
Most colleagues are very pleasant & easy to work with
Convenient cafe in the building w/ decent offerings
Nice office setting...Cube life is decent

Cons

Titles & actual responsibilities don't necessarily align
Everything is associated to a budget, I mean everything...system log-ins, training received from another internal department, etc.
Not everyone has the interpersonal skills to be a supervisor, who actually is one.
A hiring freeze would prevent you from moving to a different department, even if the vacancy already exists & you're already on board

Advice to Management

If you hire someone into do specific types of tasks, ensure that is exactly what they work on when they arrive. While team players will perform 'other duties as assigned', ONLY performing those other duties will ensure that you lose good talent quickly.
