    Pros

    Dedicated workforce, decent market position, potential to establish themselves in a variety of markets, but unable to capitalize because they could not chose where to invest limited resources. Many good ideas - not enough resources to invest in all or willingness to pick one.

    Cons

    Unwillingness to stay committed to a single strategy, unable to make hard choices about where to invest limited resources, playing not to lose rather than to win,

    Advice to Management

    Pick one strategy and stick to it, get engaged with the business and the customers - you can't succeed by staying in Jamestown

    Pros

    The person responsible for conducting my exit interview was sympathetic to the situation.

    Cons

    It's never a pro when you are losing your job even in a company financial crisis.

    Advice to Management

    With better management selection and more thought into the company direction, the lay offs could have been minimized.
