    Pros

    Opportunities for development are significant.
    The organisation is changing a lot which provides lots of challenges for staff.
    The organisation bridges the gap between public and privative sectors making it a really interesting place to be.

    Cons

    Its still a bit slow to react compared to similar private sector businesses.
    There is a lot of red tape, though most of it is necessary and does serve to provide transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to increase communication to everyone.
    Don't forget to acknowledge wins along the way.
    Build up the focus on working practices and behaviors.
