Pros

On the cover the story sounds good

Cons

Products don't stand up to the hype. Sales is run by Finance. Leadership is inexperienced. It was impossible to book a deal without going back to the customer 10 times.

Advice to Management

Since most have left the few still there should move on as well. Clean out the entire HR dept. Try to have some fun for once.
