    Pros

    Some great people on our team, but poor leader

    Pros

    Smart people with strong values who love what they do and enjoy working together. "In it together" culture, specially between junior/mid-management people.

    Cons

    Marketing leadership team is very much hands on and micro-managing, still wanting to be involved in every detail of all projects rather than focusing on managing the team. As a consequence, very difficult to get big picture of projects or to grow within the department.

    Advice to Management

    To retain people and keep them motivated, there's a need to share the bigger picture on each project and to empower more junior people so they feel they have the possibility to take initiatives without being told off.
