    Pros

    Good; Nice market reaction to the earnings conference call today. Well earned bounce setting a new 52 week high. Good team at the top of the empire.

    Cons

    Bad; Top heavy IT. Live and spend like there is no tomorrow. Bloated project budgets to hide inefficiencies, waste and incompetence. Shameful from many perspectives. Slow, destructive processes and combative style that is a bottleneck hindering the greater good. A contractor heaven though. Double the project length and double your profit, at the expense of the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Ugly: Don't beat down some of your hardest working. Mention of grant rationalization raises questions. Avoid the temptation for bait and switch on equity grants for those that manage where the rubber meets the road. Doing so will poison the well with current and future hires.
