Pros

Great benefits especially health care and 401k are very good.
Telecommuting - You have good flexibility to work from home.

Cons

This is very political place. Various teams fight for control and things go to very low level.
Career growth is luck factor here. Competence is much secondary. If you butter your boss for long time then he may have mercy on you to give you promotion.

Advice to Management

Fire all lower and middle management. They are just puppets being promoted.
