    Pros

    Benefits - I guess!

    It was fun in the beginning but then middle and senior management became paranoid - no leadership qualities! What a shame! Lost too many good people due to poor leadership! Never appreciated performance on M&As - what a shame again!

    Please purge the old "regime" - they are very behind in management skills and trust no one!
