    Excellent benefits. Health insurance is the best in the area. Every time I visit a hospital, they are amazed I have such good insurance.
    Good work life balance. But depends on who you work for. Most of them are easy going.
    Colleagues with good work ethic and knowledge.
    Opportunities to transfer between departments and divisions.
    Employee resource groups make it more than a regular work place.
    Pride in being the industry leader

    Cons

    Very hard to get promoted.
    Non-technical managers make the job harder. Too much managing and less engineering experience.
    Lack of mentoring culture in the company.

    More tiers in titles and promotions
    Eng-1,2 etc., to promote good work and value experience.
