    There are really great people there

    Cons

    Every few years another company buys it No raises - ask for what you need right at the beginning Constant fear of losing your job

    Great set of Co workers. Really knowledgeable and able to take on any task given to them across many departments.

    Pros

    Great place when you are fresh out of college. People you work closely with are pretty good

    Cons

    No room to grow in the company. Opportunities to flourish are low and ideas go unheard.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those from within and more employees with stay. Promotions many times come with no compensation, which makes this worse
