    Pros

    Flexible schedule Great benefits Leadership has followed through with their long term plan

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for upward movement in the middle ranks. Managers are moved around to different groups as they are needed. This seems to create a road block for anyone trying to move up within their group. The Denver office is not in the best location. A lot of folks wonder why we are still here when all of our US assets are in Texas.
