    Pros

    You don't have to work that hard. Easy to stand out if you're somewhat exceptional.

    Cons

    No management candor. Low upward mobility. Drives me crazy - we are all the same side.

    Stability, Benefits, Unique, Sensible, Family/Work life balance

    years of conservative success leads to slower adoption of change/progress - but it does happen for the right reasons

    Pros

    Great benefits (Health, Pension, 401k, Dental, Car). Stability. Incentive plan. Thorough training.
    Challenging jobs & opportunity to advance. Company promotes health and fitness. Very hard to get fired. Many, many wonderful people.

    Cons

    Does not cater to creative or driven people. Many long-term older people. Rigid practices & procedures. They promote health, but tend to hire a lot of middle-aged and/or obese people. If you're a young attractive female, this is not the place for you. Some bitter employees (mostly in admin positions).

    Compensation of professional employees is average.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on youth in hiring. Encourage creative thinking.

  7. Constant Micromanaging, Broad Yearly Raises

    Pros

    Great health benefits. Three weeks vacation from the get-go.

    Cons

    Constant micromanaging. They don't trust people to do their jobs. The managing system is set up to make sure every minute is accounted correctly. People in the admin side stay in their position for life - no way for promotion. Yearly raises are even across the board, does not care about work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Trust employees to do their job. Admins aren't idiots. More opportunities should be given to them.
