    Pros

    Great new campus with many amenities.

    Extensive relocation assistance.

    Role rotations every ~2 years.

    Seemingly numerous career opportunities.

    Cons

    Work life balance is more spoken about than practiced.

    Mid level management puts in excessive hours and expects subordinates to do the same.

    You aren't told what role you have until months after you accept ano offer of employment.

    Work environment is homogenous and the company culture is uptight.

    Lacks diversity.

    Forced ranking system.

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits (pension), and great work environment. Unlimited amount of things to learn on the job.

    Cons

    Strong but skewed educational hierarchy. Lazy people maintain their position forever. Inconsistent hiring and promotion requirements with nepotism governing many decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on some of these lazy people to get their job done or suffer a transfer to La La Land. Hire or fire contractors within x amount of time. Temp to temp is not an ethical practice. Nepotism only promotes self-interest not business interest. Those who are not qualified should not be hired period.
