    Pros

    Work life balance Periods of very busy to not busy so you get a break after the busy months Good benefits Good work colleagues Good amount of vacation and sick leave

    Cons

    Some of the state guidelines make no sense. Women may be paid equally as there is a pay chart but not respected equally in the workplace. New leadership so this may change.
