    Sometimes it's best to hire within your department for upper leveled positions then outsourcing for new talent.

    Pros

    This company had many of the same professional requirements and standards that most top companies in this industry base themselves with for top ranking. I enjoyed working with the staff and would consider employment with them in the future.

    Keep doing what you are doing it seems to work very well and maintain the friendly professional environment that is currently in place.

    past few years have been rough but seem to be turning a corner...

    Having us sign a statement each year acknowledging our salary is fine and expected..but calling it a "rewards statement" is a bit degrading..I work for a living and EARN my salary..
