      Pros

      The company works very hard to have a fun and inclusive work environment. Employees seem to enjoy their work and really buy in to the company’s goals.

      Cons

      People tend to start at this company and stay at this company until retirement. This is great for job stability but can be a bit suffocating to younger employees.

    9. 5.0

      Great company, priority on upward and lateral mobility

      Sep 8, 2020 - Engineer II in Birmingham, AL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They prioritize your ability to do what you want to do for the company. Based on my experience and those with whom I've worked, it's a best practice to stay in one position for 2-5 years prior to transitioning, then bring the skills you've gained to the next role.

      Cons

      Innovation suffers when budgets get tight. Very "good ol' boy" and heavily conservative.
