    Pros

    Good people to work with at an operational level
    Excellent products

    excellent human capital is under-utilized
    average or below average pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    massive reduction of micro-mangement required - level of monitoring and reporting stops businesses from going forward as they might.
    corporate processes are far to slow.
