    Pros

    Company is heading in a new direction and should see the new changes early this year.

    Cons

    With the company heading in a new direction you are left out of the loop a lot. Sometimes you will not know what is going on in your own operations due to information not being shared with you. Dealing with the union side of things.

    Advice to Management

    Regardless of experience this is not a job for everyone.
