    Pros

    Great leadership, they invest in training, open to new ideas, very encouraging group of people/leaders!!! There is mutual respect, and everyone seems to love their job and what they do! I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing team!

    Cons

    Honestly...I haven't seen any worth mentioning

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! You are the type of leaders I have been hoping for. You encourage learning and training, open to ideas, and do not discourage even the bad ideas (just re-direct).
