    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 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.
