Advice to ManagementAdvice

To be considered an innovator, you have to be willing to take risks. Companies that are true innovators are not afraid to fail... that could be up to 70% of the time. Board / Sr Directors should guide the ship, but should be involved at lower level design / planning sessions. Focus on identifying the business problem and trust the team and their expertise to deliver a solution. Not all initiatives need to focus on revenue out of the gate. Build good products and revenue will come.

    Pros

    Coworkers were usually ok people to work with. Building was newish and ok. A great place to start out and move on if you are able to piece together your experience and education.

    Cons

    Company lost it's way after the 2007 debacle with the US pullout and never recovered after that. There was a huge loss of company identity and many of the people left over from the massive downsizings were not as qualified and dedicated as those who were there before. Lots of massive, expensive delays in releasing new products. Major changes in duties caused problems for people who found themselves doing new jobs they were not trained for or were qualified to do. Too many major shifts at the top, seemed like the company had new people in the top management levels every 6 months or so and a new CEO annually. Company lost 9/10 of its market to competition after 2007. Lots of internal postering and protection of fiefdoms from supervision and management. Overall, a shell of its former self.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick your marketing groups in the bum, get a new brand identity and penalize those who delay and posture accordingly.
