    Pros

    Great Benefits, Outstanding Executive Leadership Culture #HitRefresh and Growth Mindset are affectively executed at that level. Dynamic and full of opportunities to grow in knowledge, accountabilities and career.

    Cons

    Corporate politics from previous Eras are still around. Some mid-management (Directors and Group Managers) has difficulties dealing with change and effective transformation. Poor emotional intelligence. Sharing information, opportunities with your peers to grow great ideas is not in everyone's agenda. Non health competition may be an obstacle to execute great ideas and make things happen.

    Advice to Management

    Emotional Intelligence, authentic grow mindset, Directors and Group Managers across Operations, Sales, Marketing to eliminate corporate politics. Promote healthy networking and cross-group collaboration.
