    Pros

    "Golden Handcuffs" - great benefits, keep you there longer than you should stay.

    Cons

    Whole company is a giant popularity contest full of highschool student clicks. If you aren't a favorite, you will never move up. Management does not support anyone and they leave junior employees to fend for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your good employees and stop promoting people who are not meant to be managers.
