Pros

- Work life balance.
- Strong cost leadership.
- Acquisitive organisation - opportunities often exist to support integration of target organisations.
- Opportunities for international travel and relocation exist

Cons

- Cost leadership at the expense of effective client support.
- Aggressive outsourcing of operational functions was completed too quickly, without effective knowledge transfer to JV.
- Limited specialist knowledge remains within local office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cost leadership is all well and good, but don't let cost leadership determine the level of service which you are providing to clients.
