          Pros

          Great benefits. Ample time off. Good retirement.

          Cons

          IF you are already a highly experienced employee, there many be little opportunity for advancement. It depends on what department you are in. In my department, annual raises amount to nothing more than cost of living raises even if you are doing a super job.
