    Pros

    Good benefits and an environment to facilitate learning

    Tendencies for leadership to abuse internal transfers and not properly address employees concerns, withholding promotions despite top tier performance

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, put the customer and employees first, not the business. Don't promise canned responses and be willing to accept deviation from standard protocol when clearly called for
