    Pros

    great benefits, overtime you will likely outperform private business due to Cost of living and performance raises, protection via union, pension.

    Cons

    pay can be lacking compared to other places on starting, a career path isn't easy to find. Place can be meeting hell.. lets have a meeting to discuss where to put a button!!.. ah..no

    Advice to Management

    More managers need to trust their employees, instead of micromanaging them to pieces. Management buckles under presser by End Users too much, for the "sweet sweet" feedback.
