    Pros

    Pretty much 8-5 job, very corporate culture, you can get away putting in 50% effort by playing politics. Good place to retire.

    Cons

    Highly traditional and conservative company. Your brain will melt. Starts from the senior leadership, lots of pontification, lots of “strategy” work on what to do with no actions taken.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe renew the executive leadership team w new, fresh blood. Perhaps kindly Replace yourselves
