      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Most positions are now entirely remote. They seem to care about schedule flexibility and providing good work/life balance for their employees. There is tons of room for growth on the commercial side of the business. Great benefits.

      Cons

      Processes can be severely slowed down by compliance and legal barriers. Some employees and groups are overworked due to low headcount.

      Much too conservative in many areas. Lots of red tape that hampers innovation and speed of change.

      Pros

      Unfortunately the only pro is for leaders to learn what culture not to create
