Pros

Great People! Sincere. However too many have been there for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25++ years!

Cons

Scattered Leadership, Poor Sr. Management, Poor Marketing Vision

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be an engineered driven company. Apple's not, is Intel?

  2.  

    One the right track, for the most part. But, moving too slowly, and carrying too much baggage.

    Pros

    -Renewed focus on quality from the top. (Unfortunately, the thick, multiple layers of management make it difficult to trickle down to the bottom.)
    -Enhanced rewards and recognition program.
    -Plenty of parking

    Cons

    -Too much middle and upper management (managers, directors, VP's) slows things down, and creates unnecessary levels of complexity and loss of focus.
    -Needs more individual contributor level employees to get work done, with fewer managers creating unnecessary work and taking financial resources that could be better spent on productive contributor-level staffing.
    -Sometimes, the short-sighted and over-zealous cost-cutting ends up costing more money in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organizational changes made over the last 3-4 years have had a tremendous positive affect on the company, both within and without. But, there are still one or two business units whose leadership and organization remain unchanged, that are still operating as they were before the changes, and have not experienced the positive growth and improvements as the rest of the company.

    Perhaps it's time to think about leadership and organizational changes within those units, as well.
