    Great benefits package including pension, vacation, holidays. Flexible work hours. Convenient cafeteria.
    Excellent personal and professional development opportunities. Tuition assistance. Supportive management.

    There were very few. My experience prepared me for other opportunities outside of Internal Audit. However, I think there should be more ways to learn the various facets of other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop employees and address concerns. Offer more opportunities to learn other departments. Communication is great which helped me stay informed of everything going on at the company!
