    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good work life balance. Good training. Good co-workers.

    Cons

    Would rather pay bottom dollar to a trainee than promote and pay from within. Once you have been pigeon holed in your position, they will try and keep you there. No longer offering moving packages, even for promotions unless you are an AVP or above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain your best in class employees, you need offer a competitive and appropriate salary.

    Pros

    People, compensation, opportunities for training, mentoring programs, flexibility to WFH, reputation for excellence, career paths

    Cons

    Bare bones staff, increasing reliance on consultants, very political, the company name, and lack of general awareness by consumers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modify company name. Make it known what is required to become an officer so there is full transparency and proof it's not who you know but what you know.
