    Pros

    Good salary for a small town location. Great benefits; lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Even though the corporate line is life/work balance, the office culture encourages overtime hours for salaried workers to get the job done - understaffed and overworked, which is good for the corporate bottom $$$, but not staff life/work.
