There are various advantages of tall organizations. Firstly, in tall organizational structure there is a close supervisory control because of the low span of managers. Secondly, it is a more authoritative structure therefore, the roles and responsibilities are clearly defined. Thirdly, in a tall structure the responsible person is always accountable to the higher authorities. Fourthly, this structure enhances the control of the top management over the organization.

On the other hand, there are some disadvantages of tall organizations. The primary disadvantage of this structure is that employees are less motivated in this structure therefore, such organizations lack innovation. Secondly, decision making is slow because for every decision, the approval has to be taken from the higher authorities. Thirdly, tall structure creates communication barriers between the upper and lower management.
