    Pros

    Flexible employer who is fair but demands their pound of flesh. Good staff relations and excellent benefits.

    It can be very political at senior levels and is a lot more ruthless at these levels. Heavily regulated which can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove some of the politics. Encourage people to do the best for the company not what is just right for them.
