    Pros

    Great company to work for. Seems to take employees needs and desires into consideration.

    Cons

    Currently in a market downturn. Even as they let me go due to downsizing they made sure I was well prepared and setup for success in any future employment.

    Travel and being away from home can take its toll on home life.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more attention to employees wishes to further their education especially if it will benefit PGS as well as the individual.
