    Pros

    Good for software developers and employees based at the main office. If you were located there you had access to upper management and get direction.

    Cons

    Political infighting among upper management far outdistanced by any innovation. This company's weak leadership seems to allow it's executives to put more energy into their personal agendas than servicing the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a strategy rather than throw a bunch of ideas against the wall to see what sticks. You have to make decisions to be successful. You took on too many disconnected lines of business without an understanding of how to run them.
