    Pros

    Great benefits, good work-life balance, low workload

    Favoritism is rampant in this company, resistance to new ideas, it takes years for management to allow you to take on big projects, trust on people's ability is a huge issue in this company

    Replace existing managers with people from outside the company

    Great benefits including product discounts. Lots of training opportunities. Fantastic Wellness program. Lots of fun events, employee engagements, and celebrations.

    It is time to manage with an open door policy.
