    Pros

    Many areas have great team environment, some areas you can define your job role depends on the leadership.

    Cons

    Communication, and false representation of production schedules

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't micro manage your people, let them take ownership of their work area. Use your chain of command to communicate across business units. Help, direct, mentor when needed, otherwise do your own job.
