    Pros

    Great people, free tickets to UGA football and all sporting events, great benefits..

    Cons

    Most of the people are just there waiting to retire..Not much enthusiasm...mundane ...Archaic in the way they handle things... It was a slow death for me...I need a job and to be around people where I am challenged and motivated...Forgot to add, no raise in 6 years due to furlows....

    Advice to Management

    Update all policies to reflect the the times. It is 2015.
