    Pros

    1) Some of the top creative talent in the world in almost every category
    2) Great grassroots drive, energy, passion, and character
    3) Great, proven franchises

    Cons

    1) Extremely poor personnel and operational management in most divisions
    2) Company rapidly scaled resulting in political, bureaucratic, wasteful departments
    3) Lack of high level multi-year strategy resulting in most departments being out-of-sync on priorities
    4) Extremely poor horizontal and vertical communication
    5) Virtually no operational oversight into department process, procedure, and personnel development

    Advice to Management

    Refocus efforts into personnel and production management in order to leverage the exceptional talent the company has recruited over the years. Treat personnel management and production management as a product just as important as the product distributed on the store shelves. Invest heavily in operations oversight to ensure communication, culture, and product development quality, and department budgets are in-line with corporate strategy and values.
