      Pros

      Good hours Good benefits On site large canteen

      Cons

      Many managers there over 30 years but only late 40's/early 50's and not open to adapting as they have not experienced anything else. Can make change and innovation challenging. People working there so long from school is not the norm anymore. This makes it difficult to progress in IL.
