    Pros

    Amazing company, amazing work life balance, and very veteran friendly. This company does so much for its community and employees, I couldn’t be happier. Transitioning into corporate America as a veteran can be scary and challenging. The FLP Program provides three years of experience and leadership development.

      Pros

      None. Maybe competitive pay. Benefits depend on your job. Greedily, they have a class of employee there which doesn't get to share in the yearly bonus. The bonus is called ICP, where folks can get tens of thousands of dollars or even hundreds depending on your position. If you aren't the right kind of employee, too bad so sad. You don't matter, and don't get a bonus for your hard work.

      Cons

      Advice to Management

      Fire every single one of your managers, right now. Fire directors, Fire fire fire until you get competent people in there who will treat their teams with respect, who are not selfishly threatened by high performing members of teams. Managers who will treat employees equal, and who will promote based on performance.
