    Pros

    Good compensation, benefits, and culture.

    Cons

    Upper management needed a refresh.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of talk about process at a high level, but not much in place to make sure processes are followed or understood at a low level.


  2. Too many vps, turn around too slow

    Pros

    Technology and field are wonderful. Old Gaurd at company are creative and a joy to work with. Launching products is fun.

    Cons

    Company gets in the way of its own success. Terrible growth opportunities. Poor reputation in industry.

    Advice to Management

    There is a fundamental lack of understanding on basic economic drivers at the company. If they understood the economics of their business, they would be able to lower cogs, allocate resources better and be more competitive.
