Advice to Management

The outlook of the people at higher management is very business oriented, which is a good in most cases. But sometimes, it takes away the drive for doing things really well if the motivation is just to meet the business requirements.

    Pros

    You can get a lot of exposure to different skills or tasks. Many people are overworked and asked to do what multiple people would get paid to do at comparable businesses. There are a lot of good people who will pass their knowledge on to you.

    Cons

    The workload and expectations of doing multiple jobs will wear you down and could ruin your health. The stress is not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Get leadership with passion and clue, ditch management by PowerPoint

  2. Growth oriented company.

    Pros

    They are willing to invest in employee education. They are growing by acquisition. Atmosphere is somewhat informal and flexible. Finance department has done a terrific job of managing post-Motorola spin-off debt burden. Sales Leadership has typically been very positive with a 'can-do' attitude. They are a strong player in the discrete markets.

    Cons

    Rating and ranking system of 360 degree reviews can be very political.
    Somewhat regular waves of layoffs and frequent re-organizations-very demoralizing.
    Not uncommon for frequent job (lateral) changes do to frequent re-orgs. This can make it difficult to see strategic work through to completion (we all want to feel we accomplished something).
    SVP of HR manages upward and is rarely seen meeting with employees below leadership level positions (C-level, VPs and directors).

    Advice to Management

    Provide some stability to employees. Don't re-organize so frequently. It rarely fixes much and mostly makes it look like you have no better strategic ideas and feel obligated to make some kind of change.

    Have Senior HR get to know employees. Have HR take a more active and positive role in strategy. When people see HR in their area they expect surprise layoffs, this is very demoralizing and not a necessary image. They can do so much more if they are empowered to act as 'organizational development' instead of headcount management. Focus on career development.

    Break down the silos between departments. Show the people that what's best for the company is what needs to be done instead of allowing people to protect their 'turf'. Don't punish people for doing this. People do what you financially motivate them to do. Beware of unintended consequences of well intentioned initiatives.

    Overall, you have done a terrific job of turning around a company that almost didn't survive. Build a culture from that.

    Keith Jackson and Don Colvin have steered the company through some difficult times and established a vision for turnaround and growth. Keith appears a bit introverted for a CEO. Get to know your marketers, sales people, apps people, etc. below the division leadership management. Find out what they need to succeed. You're capable of break-out performance.
