    Cons

    1) There are Politics
    2) There are backstabbers
    3) Your loss is someone else's gain. And review process vouches for the statement made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Better policies in place needed
    2) Direct Manager has a great amount of say and that needs to be minimized
