Great company with great benefits.
Part-time. Full-time status can take up to 3 years.
Good Learning opportunity and meet a lot of people
Can be thrown anywhere in the company and have high expectations
Decent pay. Raises. Union job
Stressful, senority is everything. You need to do your time if you want a good schedule or to become full time
Limited favorable things to say.
People are extremely clickish and immature.
Advice to Management
Don't follow the heard mentality. Base decisions on facts and not hearsay.

Great company to work for if you have no education and the persistence of a mule and don't mind taking crap from management who also have no education and the persistence of a mule.
Management isn't very intelligent, rampant nepotism, people who think they are superior humans because of the rampant nepotism, everything is timed (LITERALLY everything even bathroom breaks), smart educated folks most likely won't stay very long.

Stability is number one here. It's a steady job that, at least in my department, allows for a personal life. I have plenty of time off. They compensate well and there are some great benefits (matching 401(k), company stock purchase program, pension (it's not the same but it's still a pension). I work with some great people. There's nothing cut-throat about it.
Beaucracy. There are endless policies and procedures.
Depending on who you work for, there is sometimes a lack of trust in employees. The idea that I'm not working unless I'm stuck in my chair for 9-10 hours a day is archaic.
Change is almost impossible because the culture is very old-fashioned with an almost military attitude in it's operations.
The motto should be changed from "ON IT" to "IT IS WHAT IT IS". People sometimes seem to go along to get along. Management tends to do whatever upper management wants because they are afraid to stand up to them...perhaps because some of them are exhibit sociopathic behaviors.
Promotions are heavy with cronyism/nepotism. Compensation is not always balanced (underperformers getting the same or better compensation). The Company doesn't utilize it's talent. The candidates are pre-selected in many instances but the HR policies let management get away with it. For every career development position, they step on someone else's career. Promoting people who are not qualified are resented by the people who are qualified.
Advice to Management
The HR department needs a rehaul. Promote talented people into positions that are a good fit for them. Level the playing field...it's common knowledge that the interview process is a joke. Stop sweeping problems under the giant corporate rug. Question what assurances the Ombudsman, the Law Department (Business Ethics and Compliance), and Auditing are really providing. Bring Deirdre Daly back.

If you're looking for a job where you can skate by, this is it.
People get promoted and placed in positions based on politics and not merit. It's very cliquey and if you aren't in the clique, you will not get anywhere. No structure. Favoritism is rampant. There was poor leadership and even worse managers that are simply waiting to retire and are no longer invested in their positions.
Advice to Management
Invest in people who care enough about their jobs to change what isn't currently working. Don't just promote the clique and instead promote based on skills and merit.
