    Pros

    They take care of their employees like no other company. I was there for 4 years, was more than fairly compensated. They are incredibly employee-centric.

    Cons

    I wasn't able to accomplish everything I wanted do, but that is going to happen at any company. They are a great place to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are and you will continue to see how many former employees want to come back. Never been at a place that employees come back to, that says a lot.
