    Pros

    Tremendous company, vision, love the strategy and believe in the long term prospects. Check out stock price last 5, 10, 15 years, etc. we continue to run far at a steady but effective pace

    Cons

    Massive enterprise - things don't happen fast and that is for a very good reason. Sometimes trust and faith in corporate doctrine required - you can fall back on the stock price performance all these years to give you some foundation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be you - lead by example and through metrics and those of us destined to follow along successfully will see the right path. Thank you for your consistency and trust and faith in us.
