    Pros

    - flagship product is robust and reliable
    - embedding Good's security framework into custom apps is promising

    Cons

    - For context, I think many would agree that adding Security to anything inherently means adding complexity and/or preventing a "native" experience. Good is known for it's strong security; however, a surprisingly low percentage of F1000 truly care about mobile related data-loss. This is proven by MDM vendors winning market-share by touting User Experience.

    - Territory/Quota assignments are not well thought out.

    - Too many Execs do not work from HQ and seem out of touch with the market realities.

    Advice to Management

    - invest more into productivity apps.
    - invest in MDM
    - segment Sales by "hunter" and "farmer" roles in effort to create more equitable quota assignments. (hard to believe Sales Mgt. treats every dollar the same....organic license growth should not be recognized the same as replacing a competitor.)
    - hire a VP of Sales in Sunnyvale who has relevant security experience.

    Pros

    The Good product allows you to be different in the marketplace. Great atmosphere, good lunch room and snacks. Real opportunity to have multiple products used securely going forward.

    Cons

    2013 Sales strategy did not allow success for sales team, which has caused some turnover. Total change to Executive team with VP's who don't know the products. Changing the sales strategy mid-year made it hard for the sales teams to generate a proper pipeline.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so afraid to compete within the marketplace, and make more features available so more companies would be interested.
