    I have been working at Collette full-time

    Pros

    Great healthcare, friendly coworkers, paid vacation/sick/personal time, opportunity to travel on a guided tour maximum 1 time per year based on lottery system, on site wellness center/gym, 4 hours paid volunteer time a month, bonus (depending on business success) each year

    Cons

    Below average pay for industry, very hard to move from one department to another without experience in that specific department, not a lot of opportunity to advance as they tend to hire outside instead of promote from within (even though they say they do), parking is limited near buildings - have to cross busy street to get to main parking lot and that's usually full.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice when people give their notice/quit and identify if they are leaving due to lack of salary incentive or lack of growth opportunities, review the pay grades for all levels and don't consider healthcare/paid vacation/sick/personal time as "cash compensation" when it's standard at most companies by law
