    Pros

    - Smart, dedicated people that work very hard to deliver for customers in a very challenging environment.

    Cons

    - An arrogant, deceptive, and sometimes vindictive, senior leadership team, particularly within Sales. Promotions are given out based on who you know, not what you know. Sales leaders keep their jobs, or get promoted, even when they can't hit their quotas.
    - Poor leadership is directly contributing to incredibly high attrition. For a company that used to promote the strength of its culture, it sure has lost its way. People are leaving by the carload because this company has no vision or direction. It's in a completely reactive mode after it lost the DOJ case and has failed to articulate a plan for how they intend to change it.
    - Tired, worn out products. I don't know how a company can expect to stay in business when it's selling the same stuff it sold 5 years ago, particularly in the SaaS space.
    - This leadership team, particularly within HR, has no interest in developing its employees. It recruits to fill specific needs and spends precious little time helping people grow.
    - There is a telling lack of diversity at BV, especially in Sales, and it is only a superficial reflection of how the leadership team operates. It believes that its smarter than everyone else; that its point of view is the only valid interpretation of data and, therefore, requires no additional perspective. It is, largely, a middle-aged, white male leadership team with precious few females and you have to go pretty deep in the org chart before you find a person of color in a leadership role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think there is any advice that this leadership team would respect. However, one truth stands out; your greatest asset isn't your data, it's your employees. They're leaving in droves and they're not moving towards something better, they're running away from your company. Start focusing on them more...
