      Pros

      Compensation and benefits are good. Good life work balance.

      Cons

      They hire way too many people, so it is very hard to get any meaningful work unless you are big boss' favorites. Many people sitting around collecting high pays without doing any work, or even worse, fighting with others to justify their own existence. Efficiency is a big problem.
