ProsGFE is a good solid product. While it does break the mobile UX, in doing so it provides additional functionality - providing the primary functionality of Outlook in a single mobile app.

GD is a very solid product, as is Share.

ConsWhere to start....completely new exec team that brought in a completely new mid-mgmt team.

Management had their heads in the sand during most of 2013, watching with eyes wide shut while MI zoomed right on by.

Horrendous relationship with Apple means that generally Good finds out the capabilities of new OSs the day they ship. Great for heads-up to their customer base, should things not be perfect.

Convoluted licensing. Good has taken steps to correct this to some degree, with the licensing keys are way too complex - and if you have to reinstall, you'll want a noose before you're done.

People. While there are some incredible people at Good, there's also an incredible number of not so good people. Backstabbing is not all that unusual.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a buyer. This hopeless journey to IPO is eternal. Make your employees and shareholders happy by dumping this turkey in someone elses lap.

FOCUS. Then stay WITH that focus!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
