    Pros

    Great benefits! Really trying to be an Employer of Choice with an eye on diversity and inclusion. People who come here usually stay here!

    Cons

    Not great pay for the regular working guy. Not sure what "Market" rate they are looking at when they evaluate pay. Sometimes they lose sight of the details when looking at the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that everyone counts! A water bottle or a box of cracker jack does not pay the bills. Please take a closer look at the conservative way you pay your average employees.

    Coworkers are all friendly, easy to talk to management. Stable working environment, in and out at the same time most days. Working on updating the office space to utilize collaborative spaces. Clear career paths within company and they strive to promote from within.
