Pros

Compensation is collectively bargained, good benefits and some perks. Hours are good, and micromanagement, while not unheard of, is fairly rare.

Cons

Management is oblivious in many ways, office politics lead to waste and under utilization of human capital. Management training is slight to none, few managers really understand what their role is, staffing levels for the workload imposed are lower than average, with much lip service paid to re prioritizing work. Failed/incomplete projects are often celebrated as successes as a result.

Advice to Management

Worry less about rocking the boat and more about getting ship shape. High performance doesn't mean pep talks, it means cutting back to fully fund what works, not what's politically expedient.
