      Meaningful, Stable Work

      Sep 6, 2019 - Manager in Overland Park, KS
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company has a long history which creates a stable work environment. I believe the work we're doing really is making a difference for others all over the world. There is a lot available to professionals here - you just have to take advantage of those opportunities.

      Cons

      With such a long history, it's easy to think we have an old, white man culture. It lingers still but I've seen some major initiatives going on in the organization to change that. I was so proud to work at this company when Steve Edwards signed the CEO ACT!ON for Diversity pledge earlier this year.
