    Pros

    Cons

    The senior leadership doesn't seem to be immersed with the employees so that changes stick and are effective.

    Advice to Management

    Be present at meetings and support initiatives. Walk around and be seen not just planned rounding. There is no accountability for answering emails and following through.
