    I have been working at JR Simplot full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Genuine feeling of being comfortable sharing and bouncing ideas off coworkers and superiors, your opinions are truly taken into consideration. Great location downtown.

    Cons

    Large, company-wide changes tend to experience scope-creep and can be implemented with many issues/bugs right out of the gate, but that is standard for a company of this size.

    I have been working at JR Simplot full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work life balance. No real pressure to deliver results. Easy to get promoted as long as you're in the "inner circle" and suck up to senior management

    Cons

    Average to below average pay. No accountability. It's not what you do and how you contribute to business results it's who you know.
