ProsGreat products, great customers, fantastic reach into the design, engineering, and media communities.

ConsReorgs, reorgs, reorgs. Pidgeon-holed job descriptions that split authority without clearly defining authority. Lack of trust of junior and mid-level managers. Long legal processes. Lack of budget authority. Extreme matrixing.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop micromanaging, provide a career path for employees, and trust your very smart people.
