    - Discounted hotel room stays
    - Discounted hotel meals
    - Tuition reimbursement
    - Free online training and education
    - Multiple opportunities for reviews, feedback
    - Social & philanthropic events

    Cons

    There aren't too many downsides of working here, but I will name a few that stand out:

    - Healthcare options are horrible. They recently switched to a Health Savings Account (HSA) type of coverage but isn't going over well with many associates.
    - When the economy is bad, we take a hit as well. Haven't had a company picnic or holiday party in years. The hope is it will return in 2011.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You made some tough decisions letting go a large percentage of the corporate staff but your long-term vision is good.
