ProsCompetitive compensation, good benefits, great work/life balance. A lot depends on your manager. I am lucky to have a great manager, and within our group we have lot more opportunities to learn new skills and take on challenging projects.

ConsProvide more opportunity for career advancement/development. The current structure does not provide for much career growth opportunity.

Advice to Senior ManagementSatisfaction can be increased and turnover reduced by developing the professional competencies of the employee. Have a mentorship program that would help employees plan out a future that matches their career goals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
