    Pros

    Work hours are fairly stable

    Cons

    Upper management lacks leadership and intelligence. Senior ranking officers are not capable of adapting to changing environments.

    Too much politics, promotions are not given to the most competent individuals, instead, promotions are given through social committees.

    Growth only occurs through acquisitions and there is no program of standardization.

    Upper Management is very ego centric, does not like being challenged, and have their own method of doing things. As a result, it is very easy to become disconnected from the market and to lose pertinent job skills, which will hurt you in the long-run.. .

    No career or intellectual growth.

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild executive staff with competent people capable of adapting to changing environments
