    Pros

    Great benefits and employees.

    Cons

    The current culture is stuck in the old days, especially when it comes to technology.

    Advice to Management

    Training is needed in the business offices just as much as in the field. Development is encouraged but it should be required in more areas.

    Pros

    They do a good job of providing continuing education oppertunities. Very stable company where you don't have to worry about losing your job.

    Cons

    Things move very slow and employees are against any type of change. Every major decision has to get approval from city council.

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome to work with. Work live balance is great, no overtime necessary.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, lack of training. Slow pace environment not for the young at heart. RFP process is horribly, it takes entirely to long to make a inform decision.
