    Pros

    Good pay, excellent healthcare benefits, not so good 401K, not so good stock purchase plan, respect for individuals, lots of smart people to work with, good work life balance,

    Pros

    Top tier talent, great managers, culturally conducive to a work/life balance that fosters success. Great vision by the leaders of the organization and drive initiatives that get results.

    Perks limited, visibility outside of immediate organization low. There is definitely a career path, just need to state it from the start

    Advice to Management

    Encourage development to areas outside of immediate business unit
