    Pros

    Technology leadership in optical networking gave them the edge in recruiting & retaining key talent. They offer an end-to-end solution from component to line cards, pushing the edge of possibilities in optical networking.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic vision. Inability to effectively communicate and execute organizational goals. Doesn't hold leaders or individual contributors accountable for performance and promotes incompetent performers to leadership positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to brown nosers will eventually result in what it smells like... Focus on results, not politics and the company could be a market leader again.
