I worked at SERENA Software full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great talent, good culture, good work-life balance. Still has the potential of being an exceptional competitor in the software industry with strong leadership.

Cons

Problematic leadership at the helm for too long, too sales-driven, too much turnover in sales, no growth for many years and no clear vision on product direction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to those closest to the customers, which aren't always the sales folk because sales often doesn't hang around long enough to develop relationships
