      good people

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - great colleagues and open management

      Cons

      - what senior management preaches doesn't really get trickled down - poor health benefits (especially for a company with benefits consulting arm) - lack of social atmosphere- partly because of a lot of older ppl that don't prioritize work social culture and partly because the company is stingy on social budgets
