    Pros

    Great benefit options, including pension. Several options of health/dental benefits available depending on your individual needs. Great hotline to contact for benefits questions.

    Cons

    When growing your career it is tough to reach a pay grade that is in line with the market. There is such a variance salaries within a pay grade that you can not financially excel quickly.

    Advice to Management

    As with most large companies, there seemed to be quite a bit of politics that negatively affected the business. Great place to work, especially for the younger or less experienced folks that's are breaking into this market.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The ability to work from home depends on the department you work for. The salaries are good.

    Cons

    You work very hard. You seem like you never stop working. You even take the work stress with you. I am sure it depends on the position you hold but if you want to make good money... you will work for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the jobs in America and stop sending them to India and Ireland. Help our economy.
