    Good time off, 401K, benefits they pay partial. Work Life Balance good.

    Have only had one raise in 10 years and that is with positive reviews every year. No longer able to live on just this pay alone due to raises in health care. No pension, no retirement benefits either.

    Cost of living raises at the very least.
