    Pros

    Great place to start your career, willing to give opportunitites to bright and eager university grads. A collegial environment where collaboration and respect are keys to success. Strives to be people friendly and generally receptive to new ideas. Strong Pro-Environment focus in every aspect of managing the business. Very smart CEO.

    Cons

    Competitiveness of payscale is slightly below market in certain jobs, but opportunity for profit sharing can be quite interesting. HR could use an infusion of creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your focus on divisional accountability to profitability does not create silos in the company culture, especially when it comes to the divisions working with Head Office.
