    Pros

    High performance culture, international career opportunities for high potentials. US acquisition will place it at top of tree. Truly diverse in culture. People from any country can grow and get to the top and this runs in the company's bloodstream.

    Cons

    High performance culture leads to stiff internal competition and very high stretch targets in some areas.You need to be resilient and totally focussed on delivering stretch targets to thrive and this is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the resilience and think of the people. The new product world is exciting with new digital opportunities for marketers to complement the incredible trade marketing strengths in non traditional channels.
