Pros

Generally allows for flexible schedules. Great collaboration focused objective, genuine people. Company is very stable, strong pipeline and people oriented.

Cons

high expectations, resources are not well integrated. Large groups and global presence makes it difficult to induce change quickly and effectively.

Advice to Management

Be clear on objectives. Focus on a few items at a time that you want to have the organization accomplish in a short period of time. Don't over complicate. Figure out how to accomplish things at the site level globally vs at the global level at every site.
