    Pros

    Great people at all levels up to lower-mid management. Everyone is willing and looking to help everyone else.

    Cons

    Re-org both years I was there. Another one going on for the rest of this year; at least this one eliminated excessive management. Business Units are siloed. Maybe this re-org will fix that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Long-term stockholders want you to do what is right for the customers and employees. We know that stock prices will naturally follow appropriately.
    Have the BUs work together; build off of each others sales instead of competing for them.
    Clean up the pricelist: properly arrange the EX tab items, eliminate redundancy, add SKUs for making selling to K12 easier.
    Listen to your regional partners. Stop creating products for one Key/SP customer and trying to make it work across all size customers. Enterprises have there own needs, make products for them.

    Pros

    Good working place with an open atmosphere and office culture, good people, good products and technology, a lot of opportunities for people at the start of their career, team spirit of challenging the bigger competitor, new CEO with motivation and looks like he can change things. very good work-life balance and compensation is very competitive

    Cons

    going through frequent reorg, engineering VPs are changing often, competition in a tough market, always looking for growth and its never there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to feedback from the employees, create and encourage growth opportunities for the employees
