    Pros

    Communication is key; mostly working in a virtual team environment

    Cons

    Unorganized for building new team format

    Advice to Management

    It seems that after the new org was communicated, management was still planning on how the structure of new teams will be formed. Ensure that these have already been strategized and have a preliminary plan before notifying teams. People will have questions but seems like management can't answer..
