Nice place to work if you like to settle for less

(Former Employee)

ProsStable salary, work at your own pace. Good work life balance. No need for constant supervision. Affordable benefits. Good for people with children. Assists in (specific) school advancement. Nice for social events.

ConsNo upward mobility unless someone dies, quits or gets fired. Too many supervisors deciding the future of others they never physically see. Too many politics between co-workers determining future advancement. Upper level management moves around but never hires for new upper level positions. Too many employees settle and start to not care for others outside of their department. No new faces = no change in respecting others

Advice to Senior ManagementThe more raises and opportunities you provide your employers the better the work ethic and more advice-opportunities to make more money. If you are losing money then it might be time to change management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
