    Pros

    Positive local groups. Department and management gaps mean there's always opportunity to grow and learn beyond your role. Solid, if not spectacular benefits.

    Cons

    Going through major restructuring, which has devolved into an unending, disorganized nightmare. Horrible internal communication and coordination, especially from UK 'mothership'. Major initiatives are changed/dropped without replacement or even notice, with local offices sometimes working in silence for months.
    Management (while positive) is uncoordinated and poorly prepared to scale, with little project or resource planning. Positions and roles constantly in flux. Advancement is a game of roulette, with direct/local leadership having little to no say in budget or structure.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up your project management. Look hard at what's causing underlying issues. Don't be adverse to unflattering answers, especially since the company culture discourages identifying/correcting failures.

    A year ago, I'd have said to address your project and resource management before there were serious staffing consequences. Now that several departments have been completely vacated (mass voluntary departures), that ship may have sailed.
