Pros

Available resources un-matched anywhere else in sector, Excellent executive leadership, great working environment, strong partners. Great staff as well

Cons

Not all teams (P&G kind of model here) are equally well run and equally well organized. Office space split between two buildings (three blocks apart) greatly diminishes collaborative atmosphere. I would often go whole days without seeing another member of my team,

Advice to Management

Try and instill some foundation-wide practices to bolster performance of struggling branches like UNA-USA
