    Pros

    Profitable and Strong organization; continuously acquiring new companies.

    Cons

    No work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management has no clue what is going on, many departments (one in particular is a REVOLVING DOOR); managers should promote growth from within and value the employees who show dedication before they leave for a better opportunity. Send managers to management training and not just allow them to continue to make mistakes.
