No opinion of CEO

Pros

In an operations setting, work can look very different day to day. One day could be devoted to meetings, while the next day could be devoted entirely to field work. Of course, everyday can be a mix of both.

Cons

The company has a very lean outlook on operations, this could lead to work overload. But, this is the reason why the job is so diverse as well.

Advice to Management

A long term outlook should be really considered. Employee happiness can really help productivity, burnout can lead to losing experienced employees. Losing experience can lead to un-quantifiable losses in the future.
