    Pros

    The company balances work life with family life. Has flexible work hours, great benefits and pay. They
     appreciate your hard work and are open to new ideas. Have been with the company several years and have no plans to go elsewhere.

    Cons

    Could open a few more jobs to college grads and avoid contract workers. Everyone enjoys working for this company so much, that they do not vacate their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
