    Pros

    Steady work with no lay offs. Large company with many locations to choose from. There are many different types of job opportunities for a variety of interests and skill levels.

    Cons

    Experience is a must for some positions.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it can be better to take a chance on new grads and those with less experience so you can teach them the way you want things done, Then your new hires will have learned your way from the start and have fewer bad habits. A clean slate.
