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 Management

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.

    Pros

    It had a great culture, mostly fostered by the former CEO.

    Cons

    Had an identity crisis - and was sold to several other companies...leaving the employees lost.

    Pros

    This company offered the opportunity to work with some of the top professionals in the Film/Video industry.

    Cons

    Terrible work place environment created by senior management. Management ineptitude resulted in a "Talent Refresh," the process of firing employees who challenged bad management decisions.
