    Pros

    Open culture where you can challenge and be challenged without fear of reprisal or animosity. There are no politics at the 1st to 3rd level of the company which means people can focus on doing a good job and raising difficult issues so they can be solved. Rewarding environment for performers with lots of internal promotion and formal succession planning. Very strong and effective HR and recruiting team.

    Cons

    Cyclical industry means tightening the belt when the market drops but a culture of rewarding performance and believing in people means cutting staff costs as a last resort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for new markets outside of general lighting to take the core (or other)technologies to exciting new segments.
