    Pros

    -Good infrastructure to manage company projects and day to day tasks.
    -Good place to get basic experience.
    -Good exposure to various industries.

    Cons

    -Very strong feeling of nepotism there with obvious lack of upward mobility. If your not in good with the President - forget about it.
    -Terrible managerial feedback and training.
    -Archaic financial software and terrible staff management techniques.
    -Penny wise and dollar foolish.
    -Iraqi owned and they have their hand in the company's pocket which sucks them dry - company suffering.
    -Forced to use Iraqi services to complete technical work.
    -Amazing amount of time out on the road required by this company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and promote a team atmosphere as opposed to making people feel like they have to fight among themselves to get their job done in a timely manner. You're stretched too thin and therefore your people feel the same pinch. This reflects in how your customer is treated by your employees.

    Cons

    Limited career growth opportunities due to a obvious bottleneck at the top of the pyramid. So there is only so far that one can climb the corporate ladder!
