    Pros

    Flexible work schedule Good retirement pension HR is fair, they don't automatically favor supervisors

    Cons

    Salary increases are based on a scale, not tied to performance Management not open to new ideas to improve the work Typical government bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Establish a better daily accountability system for all employees- I saw so much waste and lack of leadership in my team
