    Pros

    Cons

    AWFUL work/life balance
    Goals and visions differ greatly between departments
    Bringing new employees up to speed on technologies is painfully slow
    finger-pointing culture becoming prevalent in services/support
    product engineering is sometimes misaligned with customer needs and asks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have ALL departments within the org to put the customer first instead of their own interests
