    Pros

    They asked and my homework indicated it was a solid choice

    fast paced, demanding (spoiled?) customers, a wide range of product choices to embrace

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you are doing - which include future proofing and diligent seeking of opportunities, then acting on what is actionable nimbly and effectively - not afraid to take some reasonable risks for mutual advantages
