    Pros

    Strong portfolio and Financially strong

    Cons

    Some areas of the company are a bit soloed from other areas of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the door open to employees of all levels to allow the providing of feedback. It has helped with improving employee moral in the past and (in my opinion) helps with it moving forward. Also, on the same note, periodically providing feedback to the employee population as to ideas (that came from employees) that were acted upon will help employees see how management takes employees comments and ideas seriously.

    After a few years the job becomes boring, and work dis-satisfaction ensues. There needs to be enhanced emphasis on development and honest feedback on a quarterly basis with employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More presence with employees.
    Improve communication to the field to allow them to adhere to corporate guidelines.
    Provide middle management with the correct tools to train.
