    Pros

    - Decent salary and benefits.
    - You can cruise along without doing much in some business units

    Cons

    - You can cruise along without doing much in some business units - low performers rarely fired
    - No emphasis on innovation - you will pretty much be adding some incremental little features on existing systems or maintaining legacy systems.
    - Not a place for young superstars. Even if you rank in the top performance bracket, you might not get a promotion because there are 15 other older folks in the promotion pipeline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of dead wood in middle management, get rid of it.
