    Pros

    Good opportunities for personal development , opportunities for advancement if you have what it takes, the people are great - some of the smartest people around work here.

    Cons

    Work-life balance not an option in some areas of the organization
    Have to deal with internal barriers (aka business processes) to get things done
    Employees often do not have the resources to get things done
    No conference travel in eons
    Average or below average salary and benefits

    Advice to Management

    Have some respect for the people working for you
    Walk the talk
    Think about the definition of leadership in this organization. You usually get what you ask for in your leaders. Right now, they are a bunch of disrespectful people that nobody likes to work with.
    Stop re-organizing - it never helped anything
    Get professional help to bring the organization back to health
