    Pros

    Many employees are really quite good and you can learn from your peers. While the technology the company has acquired has not kept pace with competitors , because there are so many components it still remains possible to assemble compelling solutions.

    Cons

    The current CEO, his executive hires and their 2nd level management hires brought in over the past 18 months are surprisingly weak and unprepared to lead. Sadly, the culture has evolved such that all decisions are made by the CEO and his direct reports. The result is that they're making so many trifling decisions that the quality of the important decisions has declined. Put another way, the big, strategic decisions have been consistently poor.

    Advice to Management

    Leave. The Board should act now to preserve the value of the company. And the publicly announced cash dividend? Cancel it, take the stock price hit, and preserve the cash. The company will need the cash to ride through coming storm.
