    Pros

    Very good work life balance and respect for employees

    Cons

    Classic 'ivory tower' behavior by senior management
    Senior management believes they know it all and do not seek opinions and advice of their people on the ground
    Lacks discipline across the org

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower recommendations to come from below and transform them into the right decisions
    Start behaving in a disciplined way and have expectations of your people
    Set goals, measure and have benefits/consequences

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
