    Pros

    Integrity, Loyalty to employees (at least at a personal level), great community of excellent engineers, fun and challenging work, great customer focus.

    Cons

    Expensive High Deductible health care, Salary Compression after many years service, limited upward mobility unless in Cedar Rapids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to give substantial raises (5-10%) every 4-5 years or you'll lose folks. 2.5% doesn't build loyalty.
