    Pros

    Career advancement opportunities available, opportunity to make a difference.

    Company is working to change culture, however not making a lot of actual changes to do so other than talk about it. Frustrating to employees after talking about it for a couple years already.

    Set realistic goals.

    Pros

    Good environment, safe and stable. Gain share is nice and 401k match is great. People are friendly everywhere you go. The bar for success is pretty low.

    Cons

    Too risk averse, difficult to get direction from leadership. Decisions seem reactive. Lack of turnover from middle management leads to lack of opportunities for ambitious employees. Long term employees are complete barriers to progress.
