    Pros

    Here is an opportunity to make a difference in the business with a culture that is open to ideas from anywhere in the company; when rationality is used to lay out proposals. Great team environment - everyone is wiling to help when something important is at risk, especially if customer oriented. Interactions with people from many cultures and global locations makes teamwork more interesting. Great place for a... person who is more mature in their career. People treat each other with respect.

    Cons

    Some employees (at all levels) can be jaded and negative. Wish they would just move on to another company that better suits their needs. Also, need greater accountability for mid-manager level results. Provide more opportunities to leverage this level of leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Continue communicating the strategy throughout the organization. Prepare and support VPs and Directors to directly communicate the big ideas to their teams, so they can take ownership and provide direction. We have very talented people at this level who desire to have a greater role in leadership.
