    Pros

    Great co-workers, good material and training, awesome customers

    Cons

    Constant management and organizational changes including layoffs. This provides and unstable atmosphere and is very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act quicker to replacement senior mangement, let a major organizational change last more than 3 months before making additional changes, and decide how many people you need in the organization and stop the constant down sizing, re-hiring and down-sizing again.

    Pros

    Good leadership at the very top, namely CEO Bill Nuti. He is building a good foundation for the future success of this company. It will be interesting to see if he can break through the barriers presented by the Cons.

    Cons

    Middle level management is rife with “legacy” managers that have been with the organization for 20 plus years and are hopelessly entrenched in a culture of bureaucracy, fear, blind policy, and inaction in the name of self preservation. An early retirement program for these well meaning individuals is badly needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ATM machines are soon to be the buggy whips of the financial world - plan to ditch this business in the next 3 to 5 years as they are replaced by personal electronics and electronic currency. Services group is bloated with redundancy and lacks long term direction. Attempts to bring manufacturing back to the US have been noble, but success competing against low cost production countries is short term at best and a lost cause. Investment in retooling US manufacturing for products that are sure to be reinvented in the next few years will be wasted. Let contract manufactures take this hit and conserve your cash - plan to close all US plants before the end of the decade. The HR resources at the plant level are a complete mess and need to be completely scrapped.
