Pros

Good benefits, prestige, pleasant surroundings, intelligent colleagues, adequate salary, good work environment

Cons

I shouldn't generalize but it felt like a little too often there's a culture of keeping interactions pleasant at the expense of being sincere and direct, which can lead to some passive aggressiveness. That's not very much of a con, though, and it's a culture that could be found almost anywhere -- nor is it the worst. Really, I don't have any cons -- but I had to enter something!

Advice to Management

Watch out for phonies.
