Poor growth opportunity.

ConsLowballs compensation
Hidden agenda when recognizing and rewarding people
You have to chase your promotion and raise constantly and/or threaten your existence in the company
You can stagnate and get into niche for years

Advice to Senior ManagementWhat happened to the results of the Global Survey which came out saying recognition and salary were to top most dissatisfaction of employees? What was done to address this?
