    Pros

    A lot of nice, talented people. Great building/environment/location, Great HR department. Inspiring CEO. Wonderful products.

    Cons

    Lack of resources. In several areas of the company, there are checked out middle managers. Workloads extremely heavy for product marketing managers and creative marketing team due to budget constraints and inefficient allocation of resources. The workload is not sustainable and creates way too much stress even for the most talented and dedicated team players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yes you need to be lean and the company is in turnaround and everyone needs to contribute, but you should require your middle managers to engage with their staff, listen to their teams in the trenches and be watchful of the "YES" managers who are afraid to speak their mind with senior leaders. Require managers to position their best for success, support them, help them grow and get rid of those who are not contributing. Do not stand by while people are working 12 - 15 hour days and through lunch hours for months on end.
