    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay. Most co-workers are highly motivated and smart Get their work done. Locations was central to most things which was nice.

    Cons

    Large company, so not alot of face time with the higher-ups. If you want to make a change, it first needs to go through the management channels, which takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communicating upcoming changes within the company. It's nice to have a sense of what is on the horizon instead of hearing things last minute or from other departments.
