    Pros

    Work life balance can be achieved here. Culture and people are great. Managers are understanding and supportive. People are nice and friendly.

    Push changes to make the corporate culture more collaborative where mistakes are a lesson learned and a point to move forward from. Make changes to company policies to allow employees more flexibility and to spend more time with their kids.
