    Pros

    - Unbeatable benefits, work-life balance, employee protection, flexibility, and pay. - Excellent networking possibilities & solid company reputation. - Excellent working environment & the company cares about health & safety.

    Cons

    - The system can favor a status-quo approach with little innovation. - Moving up can be very slow as longevity with the company is quite high. - The unions are savage.

    Advice to Management

    - Please work on recognizing and developing up & coming talent. You lose them after years of doing the same work everyday.
