good people operating under heavy bureaucracy. The company is made up of several fiefdoms.

Cons

1. The company has lost its way 2. Management has no serious plan to turn company around 3. Management does not communicate well 4. Who you know get you far 5. IT services is pathetic 6. Nonsensical acquisition strategy,

Advice to Management

1. Change the board 2. off load unprofitable business 3. Outsource IT, look for options at a minimum. 4. Attract and retain top talent. There are too many 'B' and 'C' players, need top tier talent

    A lot to learn and chances to get involved with understanding the business from a wide perspective.

    There is a limit on how much depth you can learn by not being the head office.

    Learn to reward lower ranked employees for performance and provide more opportunities within the firm.
