    Pros

    driven performance led culture. huge level of scope for progression both cross functionally and within function locally and internationally. high emphasis on leadership

    By virtue of being a large organisation, decision making can often involve unnecessary meetings and stakeholder consultation, which in turn slows down decision making

    continue to drive performance ethically. maintain the spirit and belief behind the brands; it is a major driver of people motivation and pride

    Pros

    reputation, scale, development all give cadbury an edge in talent recruitment. global role moves possible but getting harder due to emerging markets.

    Cons

    corporate identity preservation means decision making and reaction to change are slow and difficult to sustain. recent takeover by kraft creates uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you identify key talent and experience during stabalisation to deliver results. Our futures depend on this as we are no longer the big fish.
