    management is not fixed. They keep taking decisions which impacts employees. For example, they acquired video camera company (knowing that smartphones are taking over) and then closed it. They started with enterprise tablet and closed it. Fired too many employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to take right decisions. Dont fire employees just for sake of it.
