    Good money, option to travel and live abroad.
    Work is not that hard (also a Con)

    In some locations the money is just not enough to survive (e.g. NYC).
    Very young and unprofessional personnel.
    Some of The Security officers (your Boss) are an embarrassment to work with.
    Work is just not challenging, at all, and because your contract is only for 5-7 years, there are no "career opportunities".

    Advice to Management

    Seriously, You should try to find better recruitment staff.

    Pros

    Employee rate for flights!! good for young mothers, reasonable working hours for non-management. There a few perks as free lunch, laundry service and other

    Cons

    Too much politics, very low promoting options, non-existing work/life balance for mid level management and above. The offices feel old and mirroring the company's attitude

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting people from the inside instead of bringing outsiders for all management positions, break the unions and improve paycheck for the valuable employees
