      Pros

      Secure, great pay, great benefits. You will not ever get fired. Good home life to work ratio. Friendly people, great bosses. Pay is above market price. Let you go to school. Helps you get you licenses and certifications. Mostly good then bad. Once again pay is insane, it’s a golden handcuff.

      Cons

      Not challenging. Not for the type of person that what’s to keep busy. Everything is laid back and people that are lazy or insubordinate will not be held responsible. Hard to move up, but doesn’t really matter because everyone gets paid almost the same. A lot of people seem to not care about things like they should.
