    Pros

    Respect & Results culture demands a fair balance in expectations. Compensation is fair and better then industry standards. Rewards high performers. Organizational culture is strong, lots of pride for those who care.

    Cons

    Globally direction over local market requirements can create difficulties in providing market needs. Very internally focused organization creates a narrowed view of the sector. Requires autonomous self driven success. Must learn how to Marshall resources or burnout is possible.

    Advice to Management

    Go undercover boss route. Do your lowest level employees job for a week a couple of times a year. It's very easy to get things done with a title compounded with the wider experience and business acumen. Expectations are not fair when comparing drastically different geographical markets and scope of territory.

    Pros

    The company values it's employees and respects them more than UPS does.
    Solid vision and strategy for growth in the future.
    Entrepreneurial spirit, where employee recommendations are taken into account.
    Opportunities for career advancement, working in other countries, learning about global commerce.

    Cons

    Some positions expect double-hatting (performing multiple roles), but I believe that is a trend in many companies these days.

    Advice to Management

    Assign the proper scope of responsibilities to leaders of key areas to enable their success.
