      Pros

      The pay and benefits were great. Great training and structure for young engineers.

      Big, global company issues to deal with. It was hard to get anything done quickly due to paperwork required. Sometimes SAFETY requirements weren't created with common sense. They are now required to back in to all parking spaces.

      Pros

      They think outside the box. They treat you like an adult and I have never been micromanaged. They provide ongoing training opportunities and invest in their employees. I love that they allowed me to work remote for five years to care for my family out of state. There is a life work balance. Benefits are great

      Cons

      I honestly can't think of a con as my experience at work has been nothing but fantastic. If anything, the few that abused the sick leave policy to the point you had to curtail it to 7 days was annoying but not the end of the world. Ok I wish non exempt folks could bank overtime like exempt folks. I'd rather bank 50% or all of my overtime rather than be paid overtime.
