    Pros

    Very talented employees, both customer and network facing. Recent attempts to streamline organization is largely seen as positive, although in a give and take economic environment, net benefits accrue unevenly across departments. Heavy Sales orientation is a very positive indication of commitment to meeting revenue goals.

    Cons

    New leadership eschews former commitments to maintaining a diverse, interconnected, and happy work force. New human resource team approaches work force in an adversarial manner leaving employees without trusted avenues for recourse. Inter and intra team Communication is silo based. Parallel organizations are purposely left out of the information loop, creating speculation and then gossip which is destructive to morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have meaningful performance reviews and hold managers, especially junior VP's, and Directors, accountable for delivering them personally to their employees. More carrots, less sticks. Make employees accountable but also make them a part of the communication and information loop. Try to create a positive culture, by not encouraging silo mentality and negative attitudes, through poor communication and archaic, ineffective human resources.
