    Pros

    Great people and values throughout

    Cons

    centralisation, bureaucracy and fear of making mistakes prevented this company from making acquisitions that would have protected it against the type of transactions it is about to conclude with Dow. Good news is management has changed since, bad news is that this came too late

    Focus on revenue growth and not earnings growth
