    Pros

    Great company. No.1 food business worldwide!
    Some great brands and people
    Leaders in thkning and outlook

    Cons

    Slow, perhaps too corporate, although you can understand why.
    However, they are being outperformed by a number of competitors, both local / regional. Need to switch on and speed up.

    Challenge how they retain talent

    Advice to Management

    Speed
    Agility
    Forward-thinking....although you're trying you need to be more radical and faster!
    But...A great business, just let the outside world in and let them know how great it is
