    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. The company truly tries to live up to there Mission, Vision and Values. If you want a job that will take a chance in advancement this is the place to start. They love to promote within the company.

    Pros

    Ability to advance is there... You do have to dedicate your life to them. Upper management is changing, and going thru some growing pains. But overall good place to work.

    Cons

    Takes a substantial amount of your time. Family must be very supportive. Make sure you have a strong support system, and your personal relationships are stable as well.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your heart. Have a strong backbone, and stay focused. Not everything is as it seems.. You have to be a problem solver and decision maker.. Sometimes, its better to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission. They respect opinions.. Just dont buck the system..
