    Pros

    Focused on continually improving the work, workplace, morale, and opportunities. Compared to most accounting jobs the work/life balance is excellent, and there is no "busy season".

    Cons

    Some of the usual large company bureaucracy and "1 size fits all" policies. Being publicly traded means opportunity, but can require more work/hours at quarter ends.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on employee morale and workplace culture- it has gone a long way in the past couple of years.
