Pros

Mission oriented, everyone works to support the customer and to provide the best product possible. Good day-to-day cooperation at the tactical level.

Cons

Internal politics rules. Departments spend too much time working against each other when cooperation would drive mission results. Difficult to see the entire strategy.

Advice to Management

Drive the strategy down to all departments. Additionally, the company operates more like a government agency and less like a competitive transportation company. Drive the quality focus to all levels.
