      Pros

      Amazing salaries and benefits. Also movement within the company is highly encouraged. Great company to work for though.

      Cons

      Workplace bullying occurs on a daily basis without any action taken by HR. The culture does not appropriately address similar issues.

      Pros

      Great co-workers, compensation package is good, sabbaticals every 4 years

      Work/Life balance leaves a little to be desired, and management likes to promote a select few people from within for roles.
