ProsIf you like a more laid back life it's good, easy to not do a lot.

Good research ratings and lots of funding!!

ConsPromotion through long service, good chance of your dept. being closed if it doesn't 'perform'.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a better look at all those personal domains of power...just because you bring in a lot of funding doesn't make you a manager!
