Pros

Fantastic benefits, excellent work-life balance support, very good job stability, great in-house training opportunities, paid classes for employees at state universities, 50% tuition discount for dependants.

Cons

Low pay, few raises, very difficult to get interviews.

Advice to Management

Management does a good job with limited resources. Job cuts have been minimal despite significant budget cuts, but a lack of raises and difficulty moving to higher-paying jobs is making it increasingly difficult for employees to make ends meet.
