    I have been working at Mid-Continent Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company emphasizes work/ life balance. The work environment is very good. Management communicates with employees regularly and work hard to address employee concerns.

    Cons

    The company struggles to be competitive with other companies for talent because of corporate constraints on salaries. Most employees stay for many years because of the positive work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your parent organization to improve the compensation flexibility needed to retain talented staff members.
