    Pros

    The company as a whole values the employees. The pay is excellent.

    Cons

    The leadership is bias to hiring temporary employees. They work hard for months and years without every getting on permanent. The business unit managers are not knowledgeable about their areas and where given there jobs because of who they know as the leader. They will not hire anybody with the potential to make the company better in fear of job security.
