    Pros

    Reasonable CapEx resources. Lots of good ideas. (makes it very hard to focus) So long as a group is improving the top line, it is kept. (so hard to cut)

    Cons

    Very short term goals/vision can sacrifice longer term success. Different subgroups have different promotion standards. Company lacks specific focus. Some internal politics. OpEx under resourced at lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    Try (more) to align short and long term goals.
