Pros

Pretty well can make your job into what you want. If you need change this is a prefect place to keep trying different careers.

Cons

Compensated equally whether you do a good or bad job. No ABILITY for recognition other than a pretty lame reward recognition program.

Advice to Management

It would be nice if all levels and different staff were able to attend conferences and have access to perks. The same people travel and go to the conferences. It would be wonderful if you could only go to a conference once each five years and each person that attended had to present all information learned back to their home unit.

    Pros

    Good team here, very supportive, good work-life balance with the flex hours and the 35 hour work week. They have an in-house mentoring program for employees. I understand that the benefit package. vacation and pension are good.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get on permanently. The hiring process is a little mysterious.

    Advice to Management

    Provide ways to help temporary staff become permanent and interview feedback.
