    Pros

    Generous vacation, personal and sick leave benefits. Committed to charitable causes.

    Cons

    Position changes are primarily lateral. Well educated, tenured employees are non-exempt to exclude from bonus pool. Poorly prepared individuals given management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Laugh (or at least smile) more. It's just a job.

  6. Helpful (1)

    Freedom within boundaries, except that the boundaries are quite small.
