    Pros

    Financially sound business even during hard times

    Cons

    The company pretends to care about team members, but they only care about what team members can provide them. There are 2 team member surveys a year, but they don't do anything with the data. They are so behind the times on their HR programs. They just implemented a brand new performance review form that is already outdated.
