    I have been there for several years and each manager I have has been great. I have felt listened to, and I have been encouraged to better my work skills whenever I have sought out new opportunities.

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth and development. Large company with multiple divisions so there's room for movement if you don't like where you're at.
