    Pros

    Great place to work in. Salaries are either in line or higher that the market pays for a similar role. Leadership is great and always look for providing additional value to their customers.

    Cons

    Leadership needs to be more involved in their employees and the organization should have more rewards and recocignition programs than they currently have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more fun at work ! :-)
