    Pros

    Positive culture, freedom to be ethical in dealings, good work life balance. Excellent technology. Company takes health, safety, environmental, and security concerns very seriously.

    Cons

    Career advancement is limited to a narrow group of Golden Children who management places on the "high-pot" list. Making the list has more to do with politics than competency. BHI underperforms its peers in the sector due to management that is overly focused on the current quarter at the expense of long term performance.

    Advice to Management

    Gut the "MPQ" process. This process runs counter to the good game upper management talks with respect to long term thinking by making it clear in a thousand subtle ways that the current quarter is the only one that matters to the C-suite. Do something about the politics in the "high-pot" determination process.

    Pros

    Great company in innovation and technology development.

    Cons

    Poor leadership vision; constantly shifting initiatives and focus just for the sake of change.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your mid-management, develop and promote people base on their merits not on how well they play the political game.
