    Pros

    Great, Good and very smart people especially at the field and 1st level management.. Excellent Benefits( Although Changing).

    Cons

    Poor - work life balance. Inefficient management regimen, despite all their tools, Salesforce, Notes, still rely on MS Xcel spreadsheets to mange their business. " Chinese Fire-drill" cadence calls. Trickle down communication is very ineffective. Many 3rd and 2nd levels confused about roll and create "panicked" environment for rest of organization. Very Stressful.
    Because of size of organization, Internal IBM'ers become gatekeepers making contact with customers and prospects the most difficult experience ever.Difficult to run a team effectively with current management structure

    Advice to Management

    Half of 3rd level and above should resign. Benefits to shareholders would be dramatically improve and Communication would be clear and efficient.. What is with the "do nothing" overlay roles anyway? Too much management and not enough doers.
