    Pros

    Great pay and benefits
    Close to nature/the country

    Cons

    Not worth the pay!
    The longer someone has worked there, the more delusional they are. Management is poor, favorites are common and friends of friends get hired. It's extremely hard to implement processes and change. People are so incredibly phony and unprofessional , its unbelievable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more young people, start replacing the older workforce. Regulate pay to make it more fair Communicate better. Develop your leaders. Be honest with your investors/stakeholders when it comes to communicating actual performance don't play games
