    Pros

    Good work life balance. There is an opportunity to create your own technology, but you will not get credit for it. It all goes to upper management.

    Cons

    Like everywhere, huge salary gap between upper management and the people who actually do all the work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn more skills besides communication. The people under you are more talented.
