Pros

Its operations finance not rocket science. They give you the tools and training you need to do your job and its not a bad work environment.

    - Little internal mobility
    - Lack of formal training - rely too heavily on understaffed teams to give on the job training
    - Balanced scorecard = terribly inefficient and variable performance measuring system
    - Needs better mentoring program
    - Remove some heirarchical/cultural layers - hierarchy can be stifling to communication of strategy and ability to solve HR issues

    Take the above advice to heart. Build on the pros and address the cons. A great legacy - build on it in the 21st century.
