    Pros

    Great benefits, Always something new to learn. Good starting pay, room to advance through the company

    Cons

    New managers sometimes get placed too early in a position they shouldn't have. Some employees get placed in bad situations because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Promote truly from within. You have great employees who get passed over for Management trainee candidates with no experience then rely on those employees to train your management.
