    Pros

    The only company that's never had a layoff. Appears to be opportunities for career advancement. Some departments and managers are good people.

    Cons

    Last 'raise' was embarassing, an insult. Conservative, military environment. 'Good ole boys club'. There are some managers who continue to be promoted in spite of their well known reputation. Upper management seems to ignore complaints about managers who 'produce'. Unless you have no life don't make this place a priority because it will suck you dry, then spit you out. Seems to be the norm with most companies these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When the cost of living far exceeds a salary increase then it's time to reassess priorities - invest in less real estate and more in employee salaries.
