    Pros

    Great benefits, they are pushing for innovation, financially solid

    Cons

    Most decisions taken at the head office in Winnipeg (where job opportunities are), many changes occuring in the pension plan, they are behind about technology on many levels, still old school for some company policies

    Advice to Management

    Move the micro-managers out of management, let your well-paid managers/directors be accountable for their decisions.
