    Pros

    Good opportunities to make a difference. Most employees are competant or better. Flexible hours and work schedule. On campus gym.

    Cons

    High employee turnover. Management leads by consensus. Most of the people responsible for past success are long gone. IBM managers are invading, trying to harness the culture 2005 that is also long gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect and attack is a flawed strategy. Sometimes you have to lead with the chin to be the first to sieze opportunity in the marketplace. Sometimes you have to go "all in" when you see the opportunity and the opponent is not there to fight back. Protect and attack is a low-risk play, and with most things in the marketplace the higher the risk the higher the payout. Take the reigns, make the hard calls, and drive the company hard. It's what Jobs would have done.
