Flexible, good salary, ok benefits, nice offices in Linthicum MD,

Cons

Lack of processes/systems cause many manual and therefore time-consuming, error-prone activities. Lots of non-value add work due to lack of investment in infrastructure/processes. Lack of financial analysis. Accounting refuses to provide financial analysis to management.

Advice to Management

Invest in IT/infrastructure and FP&A. Mandate policies. Man-up.
