Pay is decent to start and good benefits, but that's all

FFEM will start you out at a decent, competitive wage but you will then be stuck at that assuming normal to stellar work. It's only inflation raises every year, again assuming you get the average review. You pretty much can't get anything better. They have tuition reimbursement, but your boss and his boss need to agree to it and they won't unless it is immediately useful to your position at that time, no improvement, no management classes to move up. And good luck moving up unless you have no life outside of work.
The issue is the management. The people are good, it's most of the higher ups that make it unpleasant.
usually decent Christmas dinner, occasional swag
