    I have been working at Los Angeles full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You can do meaningful work. If you get tired of one department you can move around pretty easily (unless there's a hiring freeze) thanks to the broad classification system. It's easy to know what to do to advance.

    Cons

    Can be very siloed. A bad manager can really damage an organization.
