What I like about the company

Enjoyed working and traveling. I had a great career, lived and worked around the world. Started at entry level typist and worked my way up to director. Retired early with a good pension.

What I dislike about the company

There seems to be a lot of favoritism, however, this is getting less as old timers retire. It was very political, which I di not like.
