    Pros

    Great opportunities, wonderful, professional people to work with! Groups are frequently being formed to evaluate and implement new processes, providing many opportunities for change.

    Cons

    First line managers are in constant flux - ten managers in eight years! Minimal 'continuing education' or skills training. Organizations and functions tend to be limited by silos.

    Pros

    Can accomplish astonishing things, company is a thought leader, always proud to work there.

    Cons

    Decisions too often made by the Highest Paid Person's Opinion (Hippo) rather than based on facts and data.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out of people's way and let them do their job. They're really good at it. Listen to them and give them what they need.
