    Pros

    This company is in the midst of a major transition from PLM to Internet of Things. They are big and influential enough to affect the thinking of the whole industry. Opportunities in this new area of focus should be stimulating and fast-paced in a rapidly growing space.

    Leadership has bold ideas and generally good instincts on strategy. Generally high performance, intelligent employees.

    Cons

    Not a lot of loyalty to the employee. A number of cases in recent years in which the quarterly earnings focus caused short term thinking and actions affecting personnel. Portions of executive suite tend to be dominated by politics and alliances over results and logic. To succeed, employees must focus on alliances with key influencers across organization.

    Tends to over-promise to customers in order to secure short term revenue. Also management-heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course, but shift toward long term vs quarterly focus.
