    Pros

    Flexibility. We all do more than our fair share of hours but we can do them with some flex especially in global roles. Culture is improving and the people are very smart and considerate. What we do for the world is also inspiring and we could make more of it.

    Cons

    It seems that at senior levels the politics begin and bad decisions are often taken. Lots of senior folks will (and need) to retire but there isn't much readiness below them, they should bring in some sassy outsiders or take a punt on less experienced but hungry talent now and again. Young managers or female and minority managers are a total rarity which just doesn't reflect the outside world. Siloes are still visible but seems to improve slightly

    Advice to Management

    You're on the right track. Mike is definitely role modelling, just hope the others catch on asap.
