Pros

You can work in one of the hottest product categories in consumer electronics. This makes it possible to be involved in "what's next".

Cons

Management can't see the true opportunities or a successful differentiated business model from what other competitors are doing. Most who work in managment are consumer electronics job jumpers who have never really had to come up with something novel on their own. As a result, most steer the company down the same paths as a dozen other industries. This has lead the company away from high margin, low competition markets to low margin, high competition markets. The problem is that the latest direction doesn't make any money. They can't figure out why and what to do next.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See beyond the basic core markets. In the end, no one will make money there.
