Lack of diversity (of thought, of appearance)
Conservative -- afraid to take real chances
Silo-effect hinders effective collaboration (across product categories, across regions)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more chances in the type of people you hire and in the projects you fund and commercialize

    Pros

    early growth...also some parts of the organization are good for global exposure. good culture. relatively less office politics.

    Cons

    front end (sales) & backend (mfg, prod dvpment) are completely different worlds. be sure of what u sign up for. leadership decision making is very slow, its easy to get frustrated. last minute planning is also another bummer, can put unnecessary pressure on u/ur team.
