Pros

- Best company to work if you want to retire, need good healthcare and believe in company's motto
- Favorable company for IT contractors. Cha-ching!
- You do get yearly raise more than 1% and bonus for hourly employees too.
- You can sell your holidays
- The company teaches you how to be politically savvy.
- Very challenging job if you are a manager

Cons

- You get promoted based on how politically savvy you are. In fact, in many job description it is requirement.
- Not a best place to work if you are new college grad
- Except few management employees, there are many unprofessional IT employees.
- Many IT teams are running the team like mom and pop shop.
- Unless you work for 6 months, you are completely alien. You will be lucky if you can find good application documentation.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people who don't talk too much and not so visible in the team. Some employees are very good, but their ideas and voice is squeezed by long-term employees.
