    Pros

    Great products and services, Great benefits

    Cons

    New regime arrogant, think they have all the answers with no experience in digital or large geographical publishing. CEO nice guy, smart, but pretty clueless on how to run a major corporation. HR dept wants to run the company - laughable

    Advice to Management

    They might listen but would never take advice from anyone in US.
