    Pros

    Good benefits, professional environment, stress level not too bad (compared to other companies in the industry)

    Cons

    Management is...under-qualified. Sometimes, experience doesn't tell the whole story (or degrees). Experience and good working habits/mentality, having worked in the same place for years is more valuable than ANYTHING you can bring to the table.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees with experience and tenure, they know what they're saying!
