Pros

- Only a handful of managers are micromanagers. Others tend to leave you alone as long as you do your job.

Cons

- No advancement opportunities, especially if your a white male. Not being racist or anything, but they are presently only promoting women and minorities in an effort to diversify management. I'm not saying that I disagree, but they tend to only promote minorities in certain offices instead of having a truly diverse management sector. In my old office there were 80% female supervisors in an office that was 80% men and no minorities. In another office it was 80% men and all minorities. Its gives the appearance that they have a quota to meet rather than hiring right person. One male in our office was promoted and he was a minority, but they downsized his position and was demoted.
- Not paid bonuses or higher salary at review time for exceeding expectations.
- When economy tanked management took ALL employee morale benefits away.

Advice to Management

Listen to your people they are miserable now. Get rid of the dead weight managers. If you don't promote based on merit you will lose good people.
