    Pros

    global footprint, international environment, ability to reach upper management easily

    Cons

    too bureaucratic, slow decision making

    Advice to Management

    increase transparency and ensure that policies are followed by all starting with managers. there are too many conflicts where e.g. branch managers want to do something that is not aligned with product goals and internal fights waste everybody time and attention.
