    Pros

    Benefits in line with industry norms. Conservatively run, but stable company to work for.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is quite political, you're not really allowed to have an opinion on anything. A healthy questioning of authority figures and their decisions is certainly not tolerated. They don't like to promote people if they can avoid doing so, but if you do intend to advance, you will need to know the manager. It's an extremely nepotistic environment. As I mentioned, the company is managed conservatively, so don't expect an above average starting salary, or a massive raise every year. The company does not require a pre-employment drug screening of job applicants. For this reason, not all of your co-workers will be consummate professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying market rates, and start drug screening new applicants. If you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys. It's not difficult.
