Pros

Good work,life balance.
Hires from good universities and most new hires are great.

Cons

Managers - for their job security, they don't let employees grow after certain stage.
Have seen some worse managers who employ divisive strategy to be at the helm.
Technical people manage some groups and that leads to conflict of interest.
Information flows in only one direction (upwards).

Advice to Management

Can easily get rid of 30 percent of managers,with no impact to operations. They can save lot of $s.
