Pros

This company made a name for itself in one market, but is stuggling to break into others. Has a lot of potential to expand and could dominate many areas if done right.

Cons

Lack of focus, too much middle-management, and limited brand-awareness in the markets it needs to succeed in.

Advice to Management

Need to reduce the bloated middle managers and enable the people actually making the products with more freedom to be creative.
