    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good location in pleasant countryside. Staff are enthusiatic, although not as obvious now the Montreal site has been taken over by CRL.

    Cons

    Loss of confidence in management by staff. Job security a big issue now CRL is continually loosing market share to larger and smaller competitors. Some very poor major decisions on investments by company management.

    Advice to Management

    You need to employ a team of scientists with business knowledge at the most senior level from a CRO environment who are capable of planning and implementing clear strategies for retaining present clients and acquiring new ones. Running a CRO is entirely different from running an animal breeding business.
