    Clueless

    Pros

    1. Strong Benefits 2. Excellent Work-Life Balance 3. Room for Growth 4. Consistently Meet Growth Targets

    Cons

    1. Sacrificed quality for quantity: growth targets are met solely because quality is compromised 2. Senior Management is Clueless: they aren't smart enough to know they aren't smart enough. 3. Culture of ignorance breeds insecurity and has numerous consequences: i. Colossal Lost Revenue ii. Lost Revenue Passes Unnoticed iii. When losses are discovered: (a) they are swept under the rug (b) blame is assigned almost at random to cover managerial incompetence. Consequently many employees are fired without any due process. 4. Industry experts see a patsy, what do you see?

    Pros

    Great industry, constantly learning about new technologies in the energy sector.

    Cons

    Company is growing so fast it needs to catch up with policies and procedures. All departments are off working in silos rather than as an organization.
