    Pros

    It is a large institution so there are options for moving laterally or up, depending on your career field and experience.

    Cons

    With a large institution comes layers and layers of bureaucracy so it can be quite frustrating to go through all of the necessary hurdles and get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Devise a human resources strategy that is more transparent, with a goal toward greater parity.
