Pros

New senior management in 2011 has made us profitable again. It feels like we are winners after a multi-year losing streak. Opportunities for advancement are reappearing. Non-contributors are being removed or leaving on their own. Management decisions are being made and actions taken after years of paralysis.

Cons

Top business managers are tough, sometimes too tough. We don't always understand what their motives are, but we are coming to trust their judgment based on the results. We are short staffed and corporate support roles in finance, legal and HR let us down too often.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not lose your courage. It will take a few more years to solve the problems created by the years of mismanagement leading to our 2009 bankruptcy. Use a few more carrots to go along with the sticks.
