    It is a Flexible, friendly work environment. A lot of existing tools to help employee complete their job. People are excellent to work with.

    Cons

    It is very busy which is good for company and good for employee at some sense. As manager, it creates difficulty for hiring. Processes sometimes could be complicated which might result in less efficient.

    Advice to Management

    I am Not sure about that. Maybe streamline the processes, not keep patching the existing processes, leaders consider what's the best for company, not just for their own territory
