    Pros

    The organization's mission and vision completely blends in employees objectives description: One always works towards an achievable goal.
    The organization offers a conducive work environment where religion and personal beliefs do not hinder one from doing their job.

    Cons

    Promotions are very rare.
    Office space is limited
    If an employee attains a degree, that development is rarely recognized in tens of promotion or salary increase.
    Nepotism and tribalism to a certain degree.

    Management should listen keenly to its employees and make swift changes to the issues they feel hinder their work.
