Cons

* No loyalty towards employees
* No career growth
* Will drop top talent at the drop of a hat
* Run by middle management politics
* Poor company culture
* Depressing environment
* Clueless management
* Difficult to move in the company, by promotion or laterally
* At the end of the day a sales and accounting company, not a technology and engineering company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on engineering, just a tiny bit.
