    Pros

    Great people that are very committed to the company. The brands are powerful and senior management is very forward thinking.

    Cons

    The culture is overly bureaucratic and requires a consensus to make decisions. Part of this is a good thing but the problem is everyone is always in meetings which slows down the decision making process as well as prevents work from getting done.
