    In most functional areas they take a hands off approach and consider the quality of work rather than the quantity of work.

    Pros

    Plenty of growth opportunities and room for upward mobility in your career. Promote internally.

    Cons

    Compensation compared to comparable positions across the industry lags slightly, very old fashioned culture. Not the most fun place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture. It's so old, stuffy, and boring..just like the building.
