    I really love this company. They have great benefits, treat and train their employees well, and promote team work. The culture is conducive to work life balance.

    You can get stuck in a role if you don't elevate yourself. Other than that, I don't see any real cons that you wouldn't see in other corporate companies.

    Advice to Management

    Try and exploit talents across all divisions. Perhaps allow employees to work on cross-functional projects so that they can get a feel for other areas within the company.
