    Pros

    Great place to work if you are not in a hurry and plan to retire from here.

    Cons

    Bad systems & processes. Too much bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Need to empower the people, give authority at execution level. Only planning, discussing or reviews cannot take any organizations forward. Need a lot quicker decisions for implementation. Too less people with too much unnecessary authorities only creates hindrances and bottle-necks.
