    Pros

    Good bunch of people; provides both B2C and B2B experience; inhouse design resource is good for quick turn around of materials.

    Cons

    Exec tend to be stuck in ways and not open to new ideas - 'they know best' - regardless of what evidence or experience shows. No appetite for marketing innovation or investment in software and tools.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the private sector to determine better understanding of corporate operations.

    Allow staff to make decisions and complete work without numerous cycles of re-working.

    Address issues with management who are not altruistic and treat staff badly.

    Listen to leavers on their reasons and address those issues
