    Pros

    Work life balance, pension, pay

    Cons

    People, management, culture, learning curve very slow for recent graduates

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to stop spoon feeding everyone. Employees slack very subtlety and do the minimum. Promote initiation instead of "collaboration" when it is actually non-existent. Plus, mixing young employees with very old employees was the worst idea ever. Good luck to new leaders trying to change the culture. The work itself is too dull for outgoing/social/open-minded people to stay in this type of work environment.
