Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In the late 1800s, Max Weber criticized organizations for running their businesses like a family, or what some of us might refer to as 'mom and pop'. Weber believed this informal organization of supervisors and employees inhibited the potential success of a company because power was misplaced. He felt that employees were loyal to their bosses and not to the organization. 

Weber believed in a more formalized, rigid structure of organization known as a bureaucracy. This non-personal view of organizations followed a formal structure where rules, formal legitimate authority and competence were characteristics of appropriate management practices

PROS

Bureaucratic organizations embrace division of labor which is efficient

Bureaucratic organizations do not have leadership wrangles as the have defined leadership hierarchy.

Bureaucratic organizations have set rules and regulation hence no anarchy.


CONS

Wastage of time as a result of a lot of procedures and protocols to be obeyed.

The bureaucratic nature of the business may breach humane relations

It may lead to dictatorship.

Delayed implimentation of policies
