ProsA global firm but the headquarters feels like a small firm so you get to know everyone on a first name basis.

ConsCompany owns many subsidiaries, each of which work as a standalone company. Unless you have full buy-in from both management, the business, and technical staff from each of these subsids, it is not possible to create an integrated platform. Also, management does not have a sufficient budget for IT software and hardware/equipment.

Advice to Senior ManagementClear up the above problems

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
