    Pros

    High intellectual capital considering some of the best brains in the sector.

    Low ability to transform ideas into action, very easy-going and no accountability. The organization enjoys attracting great people to join but due to lack of growth and learning , there is high attrition as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intelligent people but needs to understand the actual realities of the sector better.
