    Pros

    You can pursue what you want if it makes business sense and you're prepared to work hard. Almost flat corporate structure and easy access to leadership. Great safety culture and when things get tough you're treated like family. If you're looking for a career, not just a job, advancement and compensation will follow.

    Cons

    Personalities can hinder progress if pigeon holed with a manager. Satisfaction and opportunity is too dependent on managers. Merger transition is a bit unsettling. Recent emphasis on credentials over experience is detrimental.

    Advice to Management

    Systems are a means to an end not an end. Identify the demoralizing managers and cull the deadweight before good people leave.


  2. Safety first; great group of people doing a wide variety of services under a level leadership team.
