    Pros

    I like the support I get from my staff team and functional support teams. My peers are knowledgeable and easy to work with. The operating teams are open and receptive to change. A tremendous amount of experience and skill makes the amount of technology we use appear simple to apply to our processes. The company is investing in technology everywhere.

    Cons

    Some teams are ahead of others related to continuous improvement. The teams are all aligned to the same goals and metrics yet somewhat autonomous in the way they are managed to achieve goals.

    Advice to Management

    Share a single vision of what the future of our business will be. Where are we going and how are we going to get there?

    Seek for growth opportunities by yourself

    Career growth opportunities discussions should happen between employee and manager, from top down. Employee value should be recognized. Trust not what you see and what you hear, trust facts.
