Pros

High salaries paid, new corporate facilities to bring employees from multiple buildings together

Cons

Whole company is dysfunctional, each brand operates independently, student recruiting practices are unethical, students graduate with piles of debt and look forward to low paying salary jobs

Advice to Management

Reel em in. Do not let every brand create their own rules from scratch. Reuse the learned best practices
