Pros

Customer-focused thinking in a sector of relentless change

Cons

Culture is of keeping you doing what you have been good at doing. No notion of growth out side the box.

Advice to Management

Promote unconstrained thinking that is truly outside your comfort zone.

    Pros

    Great people, very good benefits, used to have good training programs.

    Cons

    The culture of the 90's and early 00's is long gone. Solar was a total waste of time, talent, and capital.

    The stock hasn't budged in 10 years, stock buy back - fail, dividend - fail, cash from $8B to $2B. What a train wreck.

    Advice to Management

    Mike needs to go. The company needs to focus on the core business again, just like what Jim did back in the day.
