    Pros

    People are smart, innovative, and most really believe in the mission.

    Cons

    A lot of mid-level leaders are looking out for themselves and need to have a broader view

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild the talent management system. The current process provides no motivation or recognition for your top performers.

    Pros

    Generally pretty good pay and benefits. Many very bright and talented people work here Good access to resources

    Cons

    6 Layoffs in 6 years is discouraging No turnover in top management despite admitted poor performance The bureaucracy causes everything to move frustratingly slow

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming the market for your mistakes. Everyone predicted we'd be in the position we are in 5 years ago and only our management was blind enough to believe otherwise. At this point, I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not they are incompetent or insincere. It is also not flattering to bash your competition. All it takes is a small mis-step and we will be in the same position as them again.
