    Pros

    It is a good place to work. Your experience depends a lot on what work you do and where you work. If your expectations are reasonable and you do your research, you should go in knowing what to expect.

    Cons

    There are some locations that are more difficult to work at than others because of management or the situation in that location.

    Pay could be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is good management and good support everywhere. When the employees are supported, it is better for everyone.
