Pros

Great managers, they care about you and will go to bat for you as best they can. Benefits are really good, they never took away the 401(k) match, which even our Fidelity rep said was high. Premiums for benefits are going up but it's good coverage.

Cons

Managers have way too much on their plates and are given very few options o how to reward good employees. Somehow office politics are accepted as normal even though it effects the day-to-day work in the office and with surrounding branches. Your managers may appreciate you but in the end, to corporate you are just a number. They don't care about you as a person, and will do whatever is most convenient/easy for the rather than what may be best in the long term.
Oh, and don't mention if you intend to start a family any time in the future, it's career advancement suicide.

Advice to Management

Stop accepting politics as normal, do something about it. Politics can and will tear apart an office (think how many coworkers of specific people have moved on/left the company after dealing with them).
To corporate, you talk a good talk but your walk sucks. You don't pay any attention to non-sales people who work in the branches and it trickles down to every employee trained. You hog-tie your workers by focusing so strongly on sales. Try following the Disney model and make it about the experience, quality and service in addition to sales. You have some great pieces in place but they aren't being used effectively.
