    Pros

    Reputable global company with strong ethics, focus on safety, cutting edge technology and engineering advancements, great benefits including work/home life balance, educational opportunities, Employee First culture. I have been with the company for around 10 years and have seen the company grow, change, and be resilient during challenging times. Management listens and suggestions for improvement are always welcome. Great employee moral. I love working here! There's even a foosball table at some sites, but I prefer the free coffee.

    Can get lost in the amount of paperwork required, and time wasted documenting rather than doing. Can be a lot of extra hours and stressful, at times, to keep up with demand.
