    Pros

    Great team with great people. The company supports the teams with plentiful resources and operates efficiently yet effectively.

    The company is lean and demands cross-functional capabilities. Decisions are made at the top and can take time to get commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Over-communicate what you can and be little more flexible with work schedule. In general keep doing what you are doing

    Passionate people working hard to make things happen. Ability to have a high impact on iconic brands. Great innovation in challenged categories.
