    Pros

    Nothing good to say about Business Retail. Wholesale on the other hand, seems to be less frenetic, with calmer and more capable people in charge.

    Cons

    Lack of experienced people managers.
    High levels of toadyism.
    Total absence of direction from senior management.
    Credit is not given where it is due.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire the right people who have line management responsibilities.
