Fortis has grown quickly and maintaining their unique culture that has made them successful will be a challenge success since the company started small.
To continue to hire the right people and keep the culture the company was built upon intact.
Upper management can be difficult to reach and sometimes communication breaks down.
Internal promotion can be difficult and there are no written guidelines established for promotion which is difficult. Promotions are typically word of mouth or employees are hand-picked by upper management.
