      Pros

      Good benefits but getting worse by the year Average pay for field of work Good opportunities for training and development from a low or entry level position Talented and hard working individuals that bring results easily stand out in the company

      Cons

      Poor prioritization and focus on many fronts - working on too much instead of prioritizing critical few leading to worse performance than necessary Focused more on reporting info up the chain than implementing countermeasures to fix problems Lack of accountability at many levels - you have to really mess up to get fired from here Lack of career advancement opportunities available above routine or improvement facilitator level poor strategic alignment - different departments working on contradicting goals Poor work-life balance (long hours - up earlier than most, home later than most, commute longer than most (if you want to live where other people live), on-call 24-7)
