Pros

Remarkably brilliant staff members, genuinely top flight technology. Renewed sense of purpose amongst certain parts of the business. Real focus on the customer. Thorsten is working hard to streamline and to make sure the company has a fighting chance.

Cons

Confused leadership in certain parts of the business, nutty budgeting processes, some leaders are just simply corrupt. Work/life balance can be tough. Hypergrowth and acquisitions have left a weird organization with confused values, and many fiefdoms. Bringing in dozens of executives from AT&T has changed the organization, perhaps not for the better.

Advice to Management

Take a long, hard look at the people leading the organization...some of them are feathering their own nests.

    Have become technologically stagnant, and need to start innovating more
