    Pros

    Lots of amazing people that care about the clients

    Cons

    Leadership teams are stretched in some areas, tackling too many projects at once to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people. Watch the ratio of internal promotions to external hires.. If you keep moving long service internal people out for external hires, you may find it tough to accomplish everything you want to.
