Pros

Momentum, Strategic Focus (albeit to much at once + urgent and important projects) and The People! Although chaotic at times, the work is meaningful and right. The days fly by and are filled with amazing opportunities.

Cons

Too many urgent and important priorities in addition to strategic. You must be smart and self driven.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing, + ensure alignment on the urgent and important stuff at the top. The Strategic Priorities are good (in terms of alignment), but the operational pieces seem to be at odds at times.
