    Pros

    Family oriented, very casual, no micromanaging, you can be independent yet in a group setting

    Cons

    Too much driving in some programs, too much work for little money. Could use more administrative staff they are loaded with work. Favoritism in few occasions but that's just work environment...

    Advice to Management

    I think for higher effectiveness, people should not be overloaded with work. Higher more people, higher more amin people, have a relationship with all the workers not just a certain few

    Pros

    Great people, hours, and opportunities. It is a great place to learn if you are just out if college. I enjoyed it.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than industry average. This is compensated in other ways such as pension, leave and job stability. Other than that there really is no downside.
