Pros

Lots of seasoned employees that are willing to share their experience. Also the world headquarters is a nice facility. Heavy commitment to employee safety.

Cons

Difficult to affect change as seasoned employees have a hard time seeing a different path. Headquarters parking lot is the longest lot ever -- arrive after 8 AM and it takes 10 minutes to get inside. Reorganizes constantly. Heavily reliance on outsourcing.

Advice to Management

Reduce the matrix reporting to a simple org chart. Look for automation in your processes and don't rely so much on outside contractors -- you have people who can actually do the work.

    Pros

    The CEO is great, and the old timers who have been there for 20+ years are top shelf

    Cons

    Too much focus on the short term, several org changes in only a few years

    Advice to Management

    Organizational design is a mess... simplify
