    Pros

    The industry is exciting; the work can be challenging; prospects are good; management is capable and hard-working.

    A body of supporting staff that feels redundant--Finance and admin teams are huge--and no idea what they are up to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more structured management mechanisms and make it engaging for all the staff; review overheads and strengthen sales capabilities; streamline processes.
