Pros – Plenty of opportunity to move around if you don't like your current position. Pretty tough to get fired. Good job security and benefits.
Cons – Extremely slow-moving and frustrating company to work for. A nightmarish level of red-tape and bureaucracy. A glut of incompetent managers and executives. Lots of office politics and ladder-climbers. Lack of good standards and procedures, but they have only been around for 100+ years, so maybe I should give them a break. Lots of hypocrisy, management says one thing, but does another. Land of the status quo.
Advice to Senior Management – Become competent in the area that you manage. Manage the business as if you were a part-owner. Think about your customers and employees before yourselves. Resist the entitlement mentality.
