    Pros

    Great people who are dedicated to their jobs. People join to make a difference.

    Cons

    Management team and human resources.The company is so unfocused that people do not know who or where the company is going. People join to make a difference only to find out that the company's 1:1:1 messaging is only marketing not reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. There is a reason 40% of your people leave in the first 2 years
