    Pros

    Hi-tech; corporate discipline; opportunities for growth; rewards for success; responsibility & accountability enforced.

    Cons

    M&A's distracting and disturbing to the core.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the company public again and let other share in its success; private control is good for management but poor for everyone else, especially with only Board oversight.
