    Pros

    Humane, personal, & collaborative people Excellent work-life balance Support & encouragement for employees via outreach programs, resource groups, up-skilling programs, & career-advancement opportunities

    Highly political & relationship-based (management has a long memory) atmosphere Slow to make decisions at times Management preferences skewed toward younger employees (mid-twenties) who are often part of established accelerated programs, high-potential & "talent" lists, and or have advocacy from very senior leaders (who are either never asked or willing to share what makes someone "high potential" or talented)
