    Pros

    JD believes in ensuring that the product going out the door is of high quality and reliability. This can have a downside to it. To ensure these ideals, promoting new technology is done cautiously. They understand that the customer is paying for everyone's salary and it takes months to find one and only seconds to lose one.

    Cons

    To ensuring quality & reliability of their product, JD follows their procedures. This can inhibit innovation.
