Pros

The short term and long term goals are communicated across the company thoroughly and celebrated as goals are achieved. The Corporate office is fast paced, and high energy with many cross functional projects including sales, service and corporate staff members.

Cons

Change management within the entire company can be challenging. With a large company footprint, generating excitement for new ideas requires buy-in from many different company roles and tenure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great communication to the entire company regarding team goals, but also communicate the key projects the company is focusing on to help achieve those goals to better facilitate the why.
