    Pros

    The organization provides an opportunity to make your mark in it's rebuilding efforts; by enabling business growth and creating an eco-system of client/partner relationships w/ direct involvement of newly onboarded Senior Management.

    WIth a presumably forward looking new leadership, giving right opportunities to middle management and pushing the envelope makes tremendous sense. The only caveat being not to "over-do" the sales; but complement it with strong business commitments that impact the longer term & medium term goals.

    Cons

    Still trying to stay out of the woods, thru an early start to its rebuilding efforts. It needs strong business vision that can cut across multiple roles in a global organization and can support it's growth.

    Seems shrewd in its principles and conniving to put interpersonal relationships first. It is yet to make it's mark as an internationally renowned professional organization. Low opportunities for people in the field to voice out their concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together at building a professionally viable and sustainable Global Organization
