    Pros

    Open mind, mobility and you drive your career

    Cons

    Middle Senior leadership need to be changed, identify transformers on middle and bottom to bring up and also combined with some outsiders ( middle means, Directors and VPs)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the SVP and VP layer and promote more Directors to put decision makers closer to customers
