    Pros

    Great Medical Benefits and Pension, Vision and Dental included

    Very busy office. Promotion based not by merit, but by passing exam. No real reflection of qualification of work ethic

    Need to motivate employees rather than having them just collect a paycheck. Many cant be fired because they are in union and very difficult to get rid of dead weight
