Pros

Good exposure across diverse teams in a dynamic environment. Leading edge technology (at the time). Varied responsibilities, so get good foundation in technology and business.

Cons

Financial problems impacted customer confidence to buy. Constantly changing environment in terms of business direction and personnel changes. Difficult to compete in same space as IBM, Microsoft etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on doing better market research to drive core business direction. Evaluate customer successes to influence future markets to pursue.

    Pros

    Benefits and salary were generous, but I am overall glad not to be tethered to this sinking ship any longer.

    Cons

    Critical Path was once a market darling with hundreds of employees worldwide. They have fallen significantly due to mis-management. I suppose some kudos must be given to the current team for trying to hold things together. Credit for that also must go to the Asian investors who against all apparent sense have continued to dump money into the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At this point, simply keep on trying to hone your focus. You've shed all of the extraneous business interests picked up during your glory days and gained cash from that - discover who CPTH really is and push that.
