    Pros

    Fairly Stable, most people who work there are polite, you can learn a lot about many areas of business, and they will help pay for schooling

    Cons

    Company is slow to change and good managers are becoming fewer and farther between. Often loud/rude or arrogant people get promoted to management and they do not listen to others or if they listen they take credit for others ideas. Also a lot of nepotism-who you know not what you know promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Know the company values, make decisions in alignment with these values, and examine your behavior to make sure you are living up to these values
