    Pros

    Great entry-level opportunities, great benefits, clean office environments, vertically integrated environment, genuine corporate engagement and interest in professional/personal development, willing to risk hiring full-time employees based on aptitude over education.

    Cons

    Strict and outdated corporate pay heirerarchy, over-saturated corporate structuring that stymies progress, ineffective employee evaluation processes, over saturated training program.

    Advice to Management

    Advance salary structure to match growing cost-of-living demand; Hemorrhaging high-potential employees over salary demands.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Pay is lower than other companies but the stability and benefits make it worth staying.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape involved to get anything done. They are constantly changing internal processes. By the time the bugs are worked out of one process they are already moving on to a new one.
