    Pros

    Most of the positives of working for Block and Company disappeared when Greg Carlson left the company. He carried the vision and kept everyone working for the same goals and gave people something to believe in.

    Cons

    Block and Company has tremendous lack of vision and leadership for the future. Only the mediocre employees have stayed and are rewarded for mediocre ideas and a lack of results. Morale is very low, giving rise to increased turmoil between departments. There is very little confidence in the leadership of John Lanman.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to figure out the core value proposition and mission of the company, and provide a strategy for the future. The multitude of mistakes made in past year need to be addressed and employees reassured about having a future with the company.
