    Pros

    Excellent place to gain experience and work with some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Understanding of roles across functional areas seems to be a challenge but this may be a normal challenge for large organizations with a multi-brand business.
    Top leaders could pass decision authority down to functional area leaders, resulting in empowerment and increased motivation.
