    Pros

    Quality of life, attracts good employees and customers

    Cons

    Has become more about profits and trying to be #1 in the industry instead of taking care of people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give back the sense of ownership and let the successful run it like it is their own . Revise the extremely flawed customer survey and stop making managers fear for their job if the scores don't always meet the unrealistic goal without having to cheat.
