    Pros

    If you like a more laid back life it's good, easy to not do a lot.

    Good research ratings and lots of funding!!

    Cons

    Promotion through long service, good chance of your dept. being closed if it doesn't 'perform'.

    Advice to Management

    Take a better look at all those personal domains of power...just because you bring in a lot of funding doesn't make you a manager!
