    Pros

    Lower and middle management historically empowered to be make calls to keep their teams happy Work with brands with household recognition

    Cons

    Not as adaptable or forward-thinking as they claim to be and still actively investing in outmoded business strategies CEO makes decisions based off of inadequate research (at best) or bad instincts (at worst) Cuts come in big, sweeping arcs with seemingly no strategy involved Not very diverse in employee make-up (especially at the top levels) and not much in the way of diversity of thought, either
