    Pros

    Great stable company who cares about its people, are considerate of work life balance, great people to work with, great benefits, lots of growth both for the people and the business

    Cons

    Because its so great the people never leave making it difficult to move up in the organization. The company is currently going through a transition so there is a lot of uncertainty at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop and challenge the younger employee base and look for opportunities to incentivize in pay because currently there is no meritocracy and people find that very frustrating.
