    Pros

    Beautiful Downtown West Palm Beach View of the intercostal waterway and the ocean. Pay was fair and bonuses were in line with Performance. Promotions and movement were very common, which showed that they were interested in growing people's careers.

    Cons

    Poorly run from a management perspective. No direction, lacked culture.

    Advice to Management

    They were already trying to improve culture and team work amongst groups. I am sure they have improved over the years.

    Pros

    Terrific all-around place to work. Couldn't be much happier with my career here.

    Cons

    The pay scale is below market rate on most positions within the company. The company compares it's salary data to the wrong competition, which skews the "Market Rate" the company comes up with.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your quality people well, and you'll continue to have quality people. All-around great place to work, would not substitute the culture for any other place on the street.
