The company's been around for 145 years; even as a BBII division, the awareness of this history and commitment to continuing it is apparent in the company's culture. Management, at least in the financial aspect where I worked, was prudent in their behavior. The regional controller specifically made great efforts to help me develop professionally.
My complaints pertain less to the company and more to the project manager to whom I reported. He resented that the company hired me without involving him in the process (his exact words to this effect were "at every other company I've worked at, no one on the project team got hired if the project manager didn't want them"). This naturally had pervasive downstream effects on our working relationship and eventually led to my resignation.

Decent benefits and work hours.
Upper management seems to be compensated well. Middle management is held to lower salaries and benefits, typical of most companies these days. Difficult to move up in this company unless you play the games. I witnessed several quality managers come and go from this organization, with little concern from upper management as long as they could keep their hand picked few average employees jumping at their commands.
Advice to Management
Consider compensating the middle management employees more in line with what they contribute, than locking them in to a preset salary. The middle management employees are more of the face of the company and have more actual impact on costs and profits in a service oriented company.
