    Pros

    Great culture. Focus on cooperation , teamwork and challenge. Company is always adapting and changing so you need to be ready for change. That so many people there have been with the company 20 years plus tells you what a good employer they are.

    Cons

    Can be bureaucratic and slow moving at times. Some silos that mean different departments don't always work together as well as they could.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to recognise those leaders in the organisation that think and act considering the whole organisation rather focus solely on their own KPIs.
