Good in short term execution but lacks longer term strategy

Director Sales (Current Employee) Zürich (Switzerland)

Pros- good execution
- good products
- people know their business

Cons- obsessed about the quarter performance which has a direct impact on ability to think longer term
- leaders are all ex-sales guys... nothing bad about that, but their strategic mindset and vision is very low at best
- no training and development for Manager / Director level... only training for sales teams or a few executives, but nothing in between... really poor company for personal development
- internal processes really bad (especially HR which is fully managed on the web... amazing)

Advice to Senior Managementinvest in the people, think a bit more than 3-6 months down the road... a lot of good / smart people leave because they don t fit into the sort term, pure sales mentality, and because they can t develop internally... very limited prospect... too bad since the company has good products and executes well

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
