    Pros

    Weekly senior leadership table talks

    Cons

    cubicle police, we can put anything on top of our desks, monthly police walks on ego trips take things off filing cabinets, yet senior leadership types have all sorts of things in their offices.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is terrible, everyone is over worked with little/no recognition.
