    Great benefits, diverse staff, many opportunities for advancement, excellent commute location, good salaries and stable employment environment. The work is extremely important to the health of the global economy. You really get a sense that you are making a contribution to the betterment of society.


    It can take some time for the organization to evolve, but be patient and good things will happen. Some people say that management is slow to accept change. It is a very conservative company, but that is getting better.
