    Pros

    Good Pay
    Good Benefits
    The company has a lot of product diversity, they weathered the recession well (see con)
    Good with granting time off in a pinch

    Cons

    Its the good ole boys club like many other reviewers say, even at satellite locations.
    If they want to promote someone but it goes against their formal practices, they just bend the rules
    In amongst the rank and file, you always know who they want in a job as soon as they put up the interest notice
    The company has a lot of product diversity, maybe they're spreading themselves too thin? (see pro)
    The jockeying for position and throwing colleagues under the bus is typical corporate fare
