    Pros

    Good benefits and job security. Friendly people and work environment.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunity In my position as sales assistant in an area sales office.

    Advice to Management

    Hourly assistants still feel like 2nd class citizens. Our opinions are undervalued, as is our contribution to the team. Keep up the good work of being a great global corporation environmentally.
