      Pros

      Freewheel has positioned itself in a great way, in a part of the industry that has massive opportunity. Most of the leadership and management are truly talented and caring individuals.

      Cons

      Some parts of the business are ramping up and new teams are still in the process of being built. This has left many taking on hard work during the pandemic to pull through.
