    Pros

    Slow - you can hide out and not get much done if you like Bureaucratic - it's about managing up and managing expectations down, and then just anticipating what your boss wants and doing that before they ask even if your boss has no clue and just responds to customer demands without thought

    Cons

    Nothing if you like the Pros.

    Pros

    Good middle management in the field, flexible work/life balance, good benefits. Good culture and values.

    Cons

    Depending on product line, attention to support and development can wane where ever upper management feels is the next trend - not necessarily customer driven. Over all go to market strategy for both the company and product lines don't match. Career opportunities are more difficult in the field, and compensation doesn't always reflect market (depending on position).
