    Pros

    Smaller, more agile company that should be able to take a leadership role in an industry that is undergoing huge transitions.

    Cons

    Total inability to make decisions. Tries to do everything and accomplishes nothing. No sense of urgency. No forward action. Always looking to the past and protecting what it has with no regard to build market share or growing the customer base.

    Hopeless and inept management. IT organization is a nearly totally dysfunctional organization. Internal networks are down more often than not. Support infrastructure rarely works. Tools are hopelessly outdated and lack investment.

    To top that off, there's the ABSOLUTELY FATAL MERGER/ACQUISITION DECISION TO BY ENTERASYS. In the world of acquisitions, the 3 most important factors are culture, culture, culture and in that regard the two companies were absolutely and almost violently on different sides on every, I mean EVERY, matter big and small. I can think of NOTHING the two did the same.

    Finally there's trust. Everyone, and I mean everyone, that I know that joined the company in the last couple of years were flat out lied to about what we'd be able to earn work for the company and as a result employee reaction ranges from rage to shock when the first couple of quarters go by and you look at your options and no hope of bonuses and no management decisions/direction that could possibly lead to such. In the end, its just a huge cut in pay that most can't afford and so the panic, rage and anger sinks in. Everyone is looking for a way out.

    Advice to Management

    Massive cutback in product line. Focus just on stackables for the Education market, exit all other businesses and products. Then kill staff not aligned to that mission. Bet everything on SDN for growth from that point of strength.

    Find a buyer.
