    Pros

    Pay is above average for location, some good benefits, fairly flexible schedule

    Cons

    First level leaders are inexperienced and are thrown into the water to sink or swim, satisfaction of job solely relies on quality of direct leader, benefits are declining, they preach equality to everyone but significant total benefits package differences especially for those that have a traditional pension and those that have the newer (2008+) plan which is terrible and doesn't keep up with inflation on growth, always in code-red, daily work is fire fighting, work is given to you to do rather than ask you how to best solve the problem, etc Most workers suffer from anxiety, local medical doctors see people for high level of anxiety due to work environment.
