    Pros

    Team oriented atmosphere, fast paced environment, a lot of room to make independent decisions

    Cons

    Too much time spend on "thinking big" that minute details are often an after thought.

    Advice to Management

    Develop from within. Bringing outsiders in damages both morale and culture. While it might be nececessary, do only as a last resort.
