    Pros

    The company provides a lot of opportunities to help advance your career through training including providing time during work hours. Often its paid (reimbursed) or free through their association memberships.

    Cons

    Management is in general 'out to lunch' - Too many bureaucratic 'red tape' CYA requirements. It makes doing your daily tasks more work than it should be - no added value to anyone. These changes happen continuosly throughout the year and always negatively impact the workload of their employees. Staffing standards never appear to take these added steps into account thus making a managable job less and less as time goes on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bottom line is important - make good on company speak and take care of all the non-management staff - they are the ones that are doing all of the work!
