Great potential, but politics gets in the way

Pros

Benefits are good. Great history and back catalog of products.

Cons

Sales force has entirely too much political capital for what they contribute. Executives are too afraid to kill the cash cows, so the company is dying from 1,000 paper cuts. Director-level managers are better at managing their bosses than their employees. Very bureaucratic organization.

Advice to Management

Disrupt yourself or you'll be gone in a few years anyway.

    Pros

    No clue what they're doing so many folks don't do much.

    Cons

    Lost in the face of technological change in education.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the education division, recognizing your upper mgmt is out of its depth. Ah, you did.


  2. Great company to work for, but upward mobility can be limited.

    Pros

    Great people, flexible work arrangements, competitive benefits, decent salaries, and the ability to move into a sales position quickly if that's what you're looking for.

    Cons

    Only people who have been in sales can be promoted to management, so that severely limits your mobility upwards. You need to devote at least 3-5 years to sales before they will consider you for management.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at recognizing unconventional talent
