    Compensation is good, benefits are good, and my colleagues are good people.

    Job security is not. There's been a lot of internal movement. No one knows if anyone is going to be here from one day to the next.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, they also provide a very competitive Salary. Great products and market share within the Industry.

    Cons

    The culture needs a Doctor, Stat! It’s becoming very “click” like. If you are not “in”, results through hard work and dedication are overlooked while backstabbing and grandstanding seem to get the favor? Human Resources over reaches hampering the business operations while quite frankly being the opposite of employee advocates.
