    "Current Employee"

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Slackers and politically correct folks can get paid for doing nothing.

    Cons

    Many bad managers that are ready to throw their resources under the bus. No focus on training or career development. Your manager will try to supress your growth to save his/her job. Redundancies in processes across organization.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring and retaining intelligent and driven folks. Lay off old timers who take fat salaries and are rigid to change.
