    Pros

    Stable employment, means you won't get fired, but you won't get too far without a strong patronage. Nowadays, that means someone from the ruling party.

    Cons

    Harassment is common, and is usual to turn a blind eye. Sometimes, the offender falls upward, i.e. gets a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look atfter your employees, dont let harassers get things their way. Fire'em! For God's sake
