    Pros

    Competitive pay, some learning and development opportunities

    Cons

    Mid level and top level management out of touch with the ground management, making decisions that are sometimes short sighted and impractical.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more in touch with ground and front line staff to really understand the needs of the people who are fighting at the frontlines. Be open to feedback. Do not always choose to hear just the good things.
