ProsSuper stable work environment, very rarely asked to work more than 40 hrs. Not a lot of personal commitment expected. Not hard or challenging. Some GREAT people to work with, very friendly and interesting.

ConsProcesses that never change, zero autonomy, no one seems to be empowered to make a decision w/out a dozen committee meetings. Almost total lock down on access to any social media.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up and smell the 21st century. Yes, you are a company that works in a heavily regulated industry, but showing trust in you employees to innovate and improve violates no regulation. Please empower people to make decisions and to really change the world. I now understand why "boringly good" is your latest slogan. Step up or you will never employ anyone younger than 30 for longer than 2 years. Look at your turnover stats for the truth of that already.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
