    Pros

    Great Management Teams who listen to their employees and their customers needs. They make sure you have all the up-to-date tools to make sure you are successful. Great Benifits and promotes within.

    Cons

    Some times promotions are not given because they do not want to have to replace you at your position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote deserving employees even if they are going to be hard to replace or the timing is not great for budget reasons. These employees are the ones you do not want to lose and also are the employees that will recruit and bring in other great workers.
