    Pros

    - Good medical benefits
    - Brand name

    Cons

    - Strong political tussle among teams
    - A lot of pressure on costing down, cut head counts, freeze hiring, acheiving financial targets at all cost, freeze training, freeze travel, freeze budget for general purchases, string corporate focus to keep selling its hardware business

    Advice to Management

    Focus on strengthing revenue, identifying new revenue streams instead of focusing on costing down. There's a finite amount that the company can cut.

  2. Great people. Too much bureaucracy
