Pros

- Excellent work environment - Talented coworkers - Company at the start of a massive comeback, which will be fun and rewarding - Excellent morale (for groups that are providing value)

Cons

- The CEO and C-level execs are good (Thorsten is phenomenal), but the SVP's under them are in need of a massive overhaul. The weird org structure that's in place is due to these SVP's holding onto the empires they've built, and not wanting to step on their friends' toes. They aren't ruining the business, but they could be so much more profitable with some major reorganization.

Advice to Management

Take a very critical look at the senior VP layer within the company. They aren't all bad, but they should all probably go. You need to get fresh thinkers in there that are aligned with the corporate vision.
