    Pros

    ADM staff and ethics. Good camaraderie and teamwork. Strong focus on safety in the workplace.

    Cons

    Lots of moving parts. Large company so hard to obtain support for all the growth initiatives underway, especially IT systems.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on continuing to do well by employees and the business community .. AND also listen to staff and invest in some more infrastructure (local, regional, global) that will assist in the day-to-day operations/ tasks at hand.
