    Pros

    Global Corporation, strong financials and job security in working in the USA for foreign employees.

    Cons

    Hierarchy, does not recognize that the USA needs USA executives and employees to run the operations and not expats. Serious leadership issues with executive team that has been left in place and with new team of managers.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your operations in the USA with USA managers as you would in Brazil and Spain and you will do a much better job of building a winning team in the USA. Do a better job of communicating with the employees and not managing through fear tactics.
