    Pros

    Technology is solid; products are everywhere

    Cons

    Most midlevel managers are out of touch with reality. The use of buzzwords and in vogue phrases seem to be a substitute for true business acumen.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost focus on the most important thing --- the customer.
