    ProsA place suitable to someone who does not mind tackling an inordinate number of action items all of which are super critical.

    ConsPotential to grow the business is guaranteed, the growth is not commensurate to the potential

    Advice to Senior ManagementChallenge the team to get out of their comfort zone. Currently most workers are doing what they know how best to do (which is good for staus-quo but not necessarily effective for demonstrating growth)
