    Pros

    Benefits are great; they have a pension. Pay is somewhat aligned with the industry as a whole. Department i am in has a superior training department.

    Cons

    Department Reorganizations and layoffs seem to be a yearly occurrence. A lot of regular employees are on two year contracts. seems to be hard to move from a two year contact position to a regular full time position. A lot of Departments would rather hire outside the organization than promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities to the employees you have.
