    Pros

    The company is definitely geared toward getting good results using the decentralized innovative approach. The company seems to provide a lot of latitude toward creativity and making changes to improve business platforms to get results.

    Cons

    The decentralized business tends to create a lack of standardization among even the sister companies. Also, some of the leaders in key positions are very political (not unusual, of course.) It seems if you aren't aligned with certain people you won't last long.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Communicate with them.
