    Pros

    Great benefits
    You interact with nice people
    Great location
    IF you are in the right department, ample opportunity to move up
    Reasonable hours

    Cons

    VERY if not OVERLY political. Unless you are higher up in the food chain you don't really have a say. You could be the most competent person in the org on a topic, but unless your title carries weight your expertise will be be ignored and the opinion of someone who has no idea will win out. That could be the case everywhere, but I'm just not sure.

    Advice to Management

    Kill the authority complex and stop politicking all the time.
