    Pros

    Challenging work, a real focus on employee satisfaction, career development and training. Also, a very strong commitment to safety.

    Cons

    A large corporate organization that can't be as agile as a small startup in the adoption of new processes or technologies. As with all large organizations, large restructures are common, so job security is always a concern.

    No fitness or recreational facilities.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good.

    Pros

    This company compares themself to all industry peers to ensure they are fairly compensating their employees in all benefits aspects. They pay well and the 401k program is amazing with a huge employer contribution. I have a great work life balance and a very good vacation allotment.

    Cons

    Procedures on procedures! Sometimes this company goes overboard and needs to take a step back and put some people that have actually moved a tool into upper management spots. College is a good “preparation” for work but the days of coming up from entry level needs to return.

    Advice to Management

    Hire employees that have experience, college is not for everyone.
