    Pros

    Employees are from the surrounding area so they're in touch with local events, opinions, etc. Many have been lifelong residents. Small-town feel.

    Cons

    The same small-town feel breeds small-town thinking and keeps out a lot of advancement unless you're already friends with someone there. Myopic and short-sighted management, rampant favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all of your stakeholders, not just the loudest ones. Overtime should be a last resort, not a production strategy.
