Pros

Small-company atmosphere with lots of flexibility, freedom, and autonomy in work tasks; attitude at operations facility level of willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done and satisfy the customer. Lots of great people committed to doing a great job and helping out across departmental lines.

Cons

Con of a small-company environment: opportunities for advancement beyond 1st-line management comparatively few and far between. Some upper management isolation and apparent lack of understanding of actual working-level operations i.e. what it takes (and what the challenges are) to get the job done on a recurring basis. Integration of acquired businesses relatively immature to date -- more 'silos' than integrated business units.

Advice to Management

Beware risks and hidden costs of minimal department staffing levels -- low depth and/or combined roles in key areas may present problems over time. Articulate more strategic vision to provide appropriate emphasis beyond current quarter and year performance.
