    Pros

    Good vacation and decent salary, work can be interesting and the atmosphere is mostly pretty relaxed

    Poor leadership, lack of direction and focus on trivia rather than technical issues. Purchasing is cumbersom. Poor adaptation of technology to improve work efficiency - Lots of paper documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a few million getting your house in order, proper PM development and efficency improvement programs i.e. searcheble electronic databases for equipment.
