    Pros

    Working hour expectations are very reasonable - no pressure to come in early or stay late, in fact it is discouraged. Colleagues are amiable, social, and very helpful. Extremely collaborative environment. Proper working environment and facilities.

    Cons

    Low salary compared to industry standard, with no bonuses or overtime paid for on-call duties. Benefits fail to compensate for this.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more and in turn expect more from them.
