    Good benefits and opportunities to move to other departments as well as other geographical areas. The company offers great training programs.

    Promotions in some departments and other levels are hard to get because most employees stay in the company +20 years to retire with pension. In some cases, it is easier for external candidates to get these positions than internal candidates.

    Promote from within.
