    Pros

    Love the people and enthusiam. There is a great deal of talnet here and awesome potential for the company. We move forward and get things done.

    Cons

    putting in place processes and then following them. There is often some revisionism when it comes to decision making which impairs teams from moving ahead according to timelines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make a decision and stick with it. There are times when new information is available and then consideration should be given to revisiting the plan, but only then.
