    Pros

    The best thing is the People and ability to learn new things and get advancements. They are always looking to improve benefits and get employee feedback

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons the only thing I can think of is that sometimes people are there for 20, 30 and 40+ years so if you were looking for a position where one of those people are it's hard to get advancements but there are always other opportunities in different areas for advancement

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice
