    Pros

    Everybody works from home (if you like that sort of thing)

    Cons

    NO employees under 30!!!! Even if they start, they quit in less than a year.
    Full of old timers (10-30 years) who have no context of the industry today and often falter at every step
    Still working on grandpa's technology stack - mainframe, dimensions, etc.! (their DevOps spokesperson is a Mainframe guy!)
    Vocal, opinionated and often WRONG pre-sales that makes sales much harder to succeed
    Poor salaries and no benefits to speak of
    Highly political environment as old timers try to protect their turf (and their jobs)

    Advice to Management

    Keep your current workforce extremely happy - if they quit, you won't be able to hire anybody.
    Move to an area where Serena doesn't have to compete much for talent - Kentucky, Louisiana, Utah, Ohio etc.
    Get rid of Mainframe and Dimensions - use the money to build new portfolio
