Pros

Work/life balance is solid. Headquarters is a nice facility with decent commute options. There are pockets of competence and talent amidst the dullards and deadwood.

Cons

Entrenched old-timers in key positions create a culture of political tension and stupidity. The internal "service" departments (IT, HR, payroll, etc) are not helpful, pleasant, or competent for the most part. Getting simple things from these teams is a challenge.

Advice to Management

Continue the house-cleaning; don't be afraid to cut deep.

    Pros

    MOST employees are dedicated, hard working and help one-another. Both HQ and in the field, they typically work as one group. HQ has some food and game perks.

    Cons

    Management is lost. Power struggles exist. Management blames employee for the failed strategies. New hires are Director level and above and the first thing they do is eliminate the workers below.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN. Take responsibility for YOUR actions. Let go of the poor hire choices at the top and move on.

    Pros

    GFE 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.

    Cons

    Where 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 Management

    Find 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!
