    Pros

    -Excellent Company Name Recognition
    -Products help people live better lives
    -Employees are world class
    -Wide Spectrum of products
    -Great Benefits
    -Autonomy to do what you were hired to do

    Cons

    -Regular Regime Changes among Executives
    -Regular downsizing/uncertainty
    -Inefficiencies that never get fixed and would be easy to fix
    -Product portfolio and marketing as well as strategies do not allow various divisions to be competitive
    -Limited loyalty and reward for achieving targets and over performing

    Advice to Management

    -Hold customers to contracts instead of taking a company loss
    -Price more competitively to increase revenue based on customer perceived value and product life cycle vs competition
    -Become more strategic vs reactive
    -Truly integrate pricing/finance strategy to leverage multiline deals. Customers soon realize that just like in a store that you are spending more money to get something you did not want in the first place and not get a great discount for it. Deals should be a package that is attractive.
    -Change customer perception of chaos and instability
