    Pros

    Good ethical company with long standing reputation.
    Conservative in their financial and management approaches (this can also be a con)
    Nice facilities
    Positive on Work/Life balance

    Cons

    They have struggled greatly in recent years. While they cam through the storm and seem to be making in through, still they are a bit shakey. They did pay back TARP but they are still reorging and aligning to the new chairmans vision.
    Significant layoffs in recent years have caused challenges in work/life (something they excel at typically)

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of mapping staff to new positions.
    Get rid of some dead weight in your IT org. Still alot of higher ups doing nothing but collecting a good paycheck.
    Focus more on internal development and training.
    Continue to improve the sourcing model in your IT org.
