    Pros

    Global network, dedicated people, seems to be turning the corner on clarity of mission and purpose but time will tell if consumers and brokers buy in.

    Cons

    Management turnover prohibits clarity of mission and continual redirection, inability to integrate IT systems. Lack of clarity around appetite. Vision and mission do not match distribution and customer demands. Products not competitive for target market segment. Management struggles with silo mentality and unable to create an enterprise wide effective team. Struggles with gathering and using data and matrix for key decisions and severely behind market leaders in this regard.

    Advice to Management

    Stability in management, set visision and mission and stick to it, focus on consumer demands in niche market segments and solve for that demand. Meet the customers needs.
