    Pros

    Vast opportunities in many different areas once you get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Leadership/Management promotes in their likeness, resulting in one dimensional executives. Which is fine when all is going well. If they all lack vision and the ability to course correct in difficult times, it makes the business weaker than it really is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting in "your" likeness and pedigree. Sometimes substance is better than style.
