      Pros

      Worked here for a bit over 10 years Have had some positive experiences with a 1-2 good managers that really encouraged their teams to shine (some others were just willing to chug along) Wonderful work-life balance if you can get into some of the functions where there just isn't a lot of work. They hire you at a great salary.

      Cons

      End of year increments and bonuses are a joke - if you stick around for a long time, you will be stuck at well-below market rate compensation. Career progression is not consistent - some teams promote people like clockwork every 3 years, others like mine give feedback along the lines of "you are actually better at your work than the person that got promoted from the other team doing the exact same job, but that doesn't mean you should have been promoted, it means they should not have been promoted!!" - super unhelpful! Too much petty politics, middle management are just downright incompetent sometimes and make for terrible autocratic managers who don't like being challenged at all. Way too much politics in some functions / beyond a certain title.
