    Pros

    Great group of peers. Interesting woork.

    Cons

    Walks like an elephant

    Advice to Management

    Put some REAL HR people in offices. HR is out of touch with what employees need. They have a rule book that can't be altered, is not exposed until too late and respond as if trying to "close a ticket". Ask for help and get flushed....
