Advice to Senior Management – The company needs to figure out what it is. Too much of the structure (organization, processes, systems) is or feels ad hoc and slapped together, like it's been assembled from mismatched parts. The company needs to develop a road plan for growth, put it down on paper somewhere and then follow it. As it is, plans get conceived, changed and dropped with seeming impunity.
Pros – * Travel
* Exposure to commodities
* Ability to relocate easily
* Bonus if you can prove top results
Cons – The company is private and therefor it does need to adhere to all international standards.
Sometimes it ssems that there is more value placed on perception of loyalty vs anything else.
Advice to Senior Management – Create career paths and that are transparent and facilitate that.
Recognize that the world is changing and that you will need to hire top talent.
