Salary - sometimes a con
Tuition assistance
Kitchen in one of the buildings.
Exchange available on base.

ConsNot good at training.

Then they complain about lack of funds for travel because they have to make unnecessary trips to make up for not coordinating.

Advice to Senior Managementset a better example for your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
