Pros

Have to pay well in order to keep people

Cons

bureaucracy here makes the federal government look lean. Good ideas often wet with sayings like: Great idea but hard to turn an oil freighter or it is not worth trying to stop a bus

Advice to Management

Stop adding Senior Management, follow through on eliminating duplication and waste at the 7 levels of VP
