Pros

Stable job. Great sense of mission. Get to know some cool stuff. Some great opportunities to do exciting things. Stable salary increases with annual COLA.

Cons

Giant bureaucracy. Bad middle management. Career sometimes driven by external events (world affairs). Can miss opportunities to do cool stuff because of bureaucratic obstacles.

Advice to Management

Promote people and dispense opportunities more on merit rather than time served to improve morale.
