    career opportunities, can relocate. great networking. problem solving. great upper management

    Cons

    Better/cheaper health care plan, no 401k matching opportunities, need to recognize Christmas and New Years Day even when they fall on Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice to Management

    we really don't need a company get together every year. make it every few years. make it regional so the travel is not a killer. I appreciate the gesture every year, but you can allocate those funds for management in different ways.
