    Pros

    lovely building and grounds, good benefits

    Cons

    Leaders are not A players, favoritism and chumming around with the right people gets you promoted or recognized for your work. Company does not value or reward hard work, they just take advantage of people. Expectations are different for men and women. Men get away with saying anything they want.

    Advice to Management

    Head your own advice, stop looking the other way.
