    Pros

    Stable company, competitive benefits, excellent work-life balance, promotes/hires within (retaining good, experienced talent)

    Cons

    Once you start working there, your pay increases (through annual merit and even through promotions) does not keep up with the industry. They need to do more to keep top talent, and even do more to retain average talent that they've invested years and years of training/development into.

    Advice to Management

    Review salaries across geographic areas, and adjust as needed. Many people leave mainly due to large salary/compensation increases elsewhere for similar work.
