Pros

Keen focus on employee development
Great leaders at middle and senior levels
Room to grow and develop within role with challenging assignments
Ability to move laterally within different areas of the company
Clear vision and strategy

Cons

Depending on team/area, work life balance can be challenging
Pay and benefits are not as competitive as other companies
Not as agile or nimble, decisions are made slowly and methodically

Advice to Management

Do not depend on qualitative measures (leadership, development) to make up for middling pay and benefits.
Look at more unique sources of talent. Some areas have little diversity.
Continue to drive great team member development.
