    Pros

    Retirement is great. Health benefits are OK - but they are gutted further each year..

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. 60% market rate. Due to low salary, bottom of the barrel "talent" is prevalent. Positions stay open for long periods of time because they can't attract good employees. Skilled positions are treated the same as unskilled. Nothing gets done quickly, processes are inefficient on purpose. Absolutely no risk taken. No upward mobility unless someone leaves.

    Advice to Management

    Competent employees are the ones that leave if you do nothing about the incompetent employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great opportunity to serve customers, and finally there is a mission statement with goals.

    Cons

    Stressful environment; "high school" mentality - if you are not "in", there is no promotion; pay scale is same for new employees and five-plus year employees - no cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    Need diverse training, stop changing job descriptions just to create salary increases within management, and listen to clerks to improve service.
