      alot of solid process in place allows the employee to be more accountable for their actions. by and large a well ran organization from having worked at many un organized operations prior.

      along with many bureaucratic systems, there lends to be a bit of stagnation and not emphasizing talents and empowering the growth of individual.

      Overall Solid Company

      Pros

      This company does a good job at nurturing and supporting your professional growth, advancement and development. There is plenty of opportunity for career advancement so long as you know which path you want to take. No one will make that decision for you. Good work life balance with stability is also a big plus.

      Cons

      I am definitely split when it comes to management. Some managers are better about staying up to date while others seem to care less. This industry in general is reluctant to change though which is a problem. There are also a fair number of employees who could do a whole lot better, but choose to do the bare minimum.
