    Pros

    Outstanding vision, comprehensive understanding of poverty, holistic perspective, nice people, respected name, evangelical, hasn't abandoned the church, large enough to have options, entrepreneurial jobs.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to administer. So decentralized that it lacks accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've seen how difficult it is to administer, and I don't want your job. Focus on product lines.
