    Pros

    Work with great people.
    It's like an agency since there are so many brands, but we own the brands so there isn't the pressure of "pleasing" a client.
    Variety.

    Cons

    Changing business model makes it hard to have structure.
    Everything is last minute.
    Too few people working on too many brands.

    Advice to Management

    Current management has destroyed decades of equity by jettisoning the CEO, CMO, and their respective staffs. Probably too late to restore to it's glory years and will now, most likely sell off individual brands as they need to in order to perform for Wall St. expectations.
