    Pros

    People are extremely friendly and are always willing to help you. The company has a lot of potentials in the future as they're recovering from the expensive acquisition.

    Cons

    Some employees might be a little bit lay back but it's a good thing if you want to retire with the company. Decision making takes a little bit longer as the same case in every large companies.

    Advice to Management

    Try to improve efficiency of the organization. Have more focus on the future market dynamics to maintain its competitive advantage.
