    Pros

    Large organization offering careers across the country. Good wellness benefits.

    Like most organizations; you'll have to pull more than your weight. The company's value does not always trickle down stream.

    Pros

    They really show how much they appreciate you with quarterly and annual incentives. Also managers acknowledge you by providing monetary rewards for a job well done. They invest in their employees and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    There is way too much change within the structure of the organization. Change is a good thing too much change all the time can leave employees weary.
