    Pros

    Availability of knowledge and opportunity for various training courses.
    Movement within company is available and encouraged.

    There is a definite glass ceiling within the company, which causes most new hires to leave within the first few years so search for better opportunities.

Good benefits - one of the few companies out there that still offers pension plan. There are so many long-term employees giving a testament to this. Has a excellent work-life balance. Company policy is environmentally-friendly.
