    Pros

    Good benefits
    Some managers are great to work with
    Good work/life balance most the time
    Not bad for career building experience

    Cons

    No accountability, poor communication between departments and management. Best employees are always asked to clean up messes but reciev no recognition. Minimal training given across the board.
    No attempts at showing employee appreciation, no interest in retaining talent. Tech center facility is in bad shape.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap on everything, it always ends up costing more in the long run and is just a hassle to employees. Actually try to reward success and retain talent. Give more sick days or remote work options. Give proper training and it will pay off.
