    dinosaur mentality
    great internship, dismal full time after that.
    as i said , you are in for a long haul
    non competitive salary
    poor promotion structure, they seldom hire inside people for executive positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try retaining your talent. luring sub par employees with mediocre pay can only get you so far.

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay, lots of vacation time

    Cons

    The benefits offered are expensive, they only promote men regardless of seniority, some days felt like working in a sweat shop where you have to be on the phones and processing applications and if you got up to use the bathroom you were asked a million questions on where you went and why you felt now was a good time to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to promote people based on competency and seniority, not gender. Also it never seemed as though the workers and the managers understood each other.
