    Pros

    Large company with opportunities to grow across multiple business groups. Excellent benefits package. Developing a more forward approach towards work/life balance and health / wellness.

    Good pay, PTO, profit sharing, company is generous with donations to the community.

    Less management and more employees who do the work. You can only “raise the bar” so many times before the bar is unreachable and unrealistic.
