    Pros

    Progressive, strong ethical and performance oriented culture. Open communication and empowerment of managers to take decisions. Relatively flatter organisation structure and networking skills highly valued. Meritocratic with a strong emphasis on relationships and people development.

    Cons

    Heavy focus on process can sometimes come in the way of innovation and fast decision making. Sustained outsourcing of finance activity over the years has led to constraining of career opportunities for senior finance staff.

    Advice to Management

    Promote innovation, easier decision making. Think harder of the impact on people of the constant change in the organisation
