Pros

Good people to work with, employees as people are valued and treated fairly well, pay is decent, benefits package is good.

Cons

No upward mobility, no accountability for Director level and higher with regards to if their department is thriving or failing and why. Seen alot of turnover in some departments with no consulting of other employees as to what is going on. Culture is a bit old school and old boys' club mentality, lack of any mentorship by management - just sort of left to your devices and even if you show competitency, tasks are just taken away and you are held back professionally. Sometimes management acts as if its in an upper eschelon 'club' of sorts and that no 'regular' employee could possibly do their job thereby holding people back even though they have decades of experience.

Advice to Management

Take some time to develop the staff you currently have instead of hiring outside. I felt that the management didn't respect you if you weren't hired as a manager and favored the phrase "well, you're not 'ready' for promotion". With many employees being long term this cannot possibly be the case for everyone. It is rare to see the commoners become management and if they do, its after being there 9+ years with a ton of ass kissing the right person and begging.
