    Pros

    Company is very fair regarding benefits, Paid time off.. Good insurance plan-competitive with other large companies. Salary also very competitive. Good place to work if you want to grow with your employer.

    Cons

    Due to large size there are times when upper management is not in touch with the day to day routine part of the business so not aware that some lower to mid level managers need to be trained in employee relations.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit suggestions from all employees, not just your department managers.
