      Pros

      The training was great and so were all the staff. The work atmosphere was excellent. You could apply for other jobs for advancement when they came up.

      Cons

      Nepotism is rampant (no policy against it), senior leadership, bureaucracy, union promotions are based on seniority versus experience, a lot of travel time away from home for field employees
