    Pros

    Very relaxed environment with people that are flexible with your work schedule. Additionally, the health and retirement benefits are the best that you can find.

    Cons

    Lack of advancement in the position, sometimes difficult to achieve goals due to funding.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I would have is to begin things way earlier than you normally would due to the lengthy democratic process.
