    Pros

    Learning and training opportunities, at least until they decide to freeze all spending. A good place to start your career and move on. Very stable company with a lot of growth.

    Cons

    Old school management. A place where you can still find managers without a college degree. The place is managed like a "mom and pop" shop making it very difficult to implement any new ideas.
