    Pros

    Well-organized, structured environment
    Diverse product offering and global footprint hedges business exposure
    Most work done in-house, with minimal outsourcing or dependence on contractors / consultants

    Cons

    More to do than what can be accomplished w/ existing time/resources (true of most companies)
    Very conservative values can lead to overabundance of caution (can be costly)

    Advice to Management

    Consider allowing more flexibility regarding remote work arrangements. Not everyone has to be physically at a company site to effectively contribute to the company's success.
