Pros

"Steady Job" - If you want a job that allows you to live in a quiet place by the sea it may be a good choice
Some of the work is engaging and interesting, but only in hardware or software development.

Cons

Low Pay when compared to other similar companies
Small Town company, not multi-cultural and centered around the main office
Management promoted from within and not very open to new ideas
Work-Life balance is an issue in software development, installation and support - other areas are ok

Hire Managers from outside the company, it need's fresh ideas.
