    Work-life balance is excellent. People are treated well and respectfully. Knowledgeable staff and leadership. A lot of growth potential. You can expect merit and performance-based promotions here. Intelligence and competence are expected and recognized. I've really enjoyed working here.

    Pros

    Colleagues were good to work with

    Cons

    No strategy and opportunity to use the skills you have. Power is concentrated in the hands of the few and they clearly have no idea what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Stop hiring people in key positions that are not competent
