Company offers good benefits, education/certification reimbursement, provides a model corporate culture, and they do tend to prefer promoting from within.
On the down-side, the compensation for the position is not commensurate with the level of knowledge and skills demanded; although Paid Time Off is a benefit, it's sometimes impossible to get time off approved.
Advice to Management

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at American Century (Mountain View, CA) in March 2015.
Recruiter from staffing agency reached out on LinkedIn. I spoke with her and the Hiring Manager over the phone. There were two distinct rounds of interviews: 1) on-site with most of the team I'd be working with + another phone interview a few days later 2) meeting with boss's boss and newly hired team development lead. Found out shortly after the second round that I had gotten the job.
