    Pros

    Great place to start to learn about corporate america and learn about the foundation that drives a culture of excellence. Great employees. excellent benefits. Family oriented. Flexible schedules

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Go above and beyond supporting and advocating for employees. Actually believing in the goodness in them instead of keeping them isolated from other opportunities b/c of a mistake. Empower employees to reach their highest potential and spend more time developing them.
