Fun and Party Culture

Cons

Little Career Development Opportunities
Resistance to Change by employees who have been working from over 20 years at work
Tooooo much Finance controlled organization for no reason

Advice to Management

Finance should stop controlling other department
Please get a little bit aggressive in going after new opportunities which we fail with same excuse all the time "We are not setup like that"

    Pros

    solid financials
    low attrition
    market leadership position (in NA and EU)
    generally nice and friendly people
    interesting technology and strategy

    Cons

    Moves slow: legacy products, culture, and processes make change very painful.
    Little empowerment: many people involved in every decision
    Very little career development, most management positions are recruited externally
    Revolving door at the executive levels

    Advice to Management

    groom internal talent in all departments
    empower your domain experts: Product Managers shouldn't be held up as the experts in everything.
