    Pros

    Well established firm that promotes from within and provide benefits at a partial cost to employees and employees pay for family coverages at 100 Percent.

    Cons

    Corporate needs to work better with other satellite offices and have a fully functional merge system if they plan on reviewing you on a system that still has a lot of glitches.

    Advice to Management

    Get forms and procedures in order before you hold employees accountable for using them.
