    The professional culture is good. Changes were made by the current executives, resulted to a more relaxed environment. Good pay and benefits if you are an officer. They also offer stock purchase.

    Cons

    Too traditional and seniority still exists. The process to request supplies are so slow. Top management are open to listen but does not implement.
