Advice to ManagementAdvice

Frankly I feel the Bear Data Executive team is doing the best they can in the volatile environment of SI/VAR Sales and are doing a great job. The only advice I would give them is to be more selective in terms of who is hired for open sales positions as not everyone is a good fit for the fast paced, high pressure, results oriented environment that is Bear Data.

    Pros

    Solid business with strong partnerships and some good customers; talented people who want to be led and be successful.

    Cons

    CEO cannot be trusted and is not an effective leader; some other senior level people try but have no ability to impact things because of the CEO's micromanagement, irrational behavior and frequent shifts in direction; CEO is prone to outbursts and temper tantrums creating a culture of fear; there is no clear vision or strategy; they have yet to figure out how to sell solutions versus products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO should not be involved in the daily management or operation of the business. He should step aside and let others do what they know how to and were hired to do...create a strategy, build a culture and empower the team to perform.
