    Pros

    Great company
    Lots of opportunity for promotions
    Really value their employees
    Good compensation
    Great work/life balance

    Cons

    Very few... but some members of the executive teams locally are rude and harsh with employees. Don't live the brand. HR doesn't help employees, just ignores the issues.

    Advice to Management

    Really pay attention to what the front line staff is saying. They are the ones doing the work!

    Pros

    Great medical/dental benefits. Many opportunities within the company in many locations. Some on the job training.

    Cons

    Must join the union. This can be a negative or a positive. Jobs are filled by seniority vs. experience. Employees are rewarded for seniority vs merit.

    Pros

    Great benefits, important mission, many very smart people. Strong diversity culture.

    Cons

    Leaders are a mixed bag. Some are visionary, but then there are others who have been here a long time who are indecisive and slow to move. Environment is not fast paced. Takes a lot of patience to work here.
