    Pros

    Not too much stress in most divisions, some may get really pushed hard.
    Acceptable or better benefits, support training/education
    Flexible work environment, telecommute is okay
    Great cloud related products and services

    Cons

    SLOW decisions
    can be too slow for some typical of telco/service providers
    not good with recognition
    everyone is about protecting their turf
    not very good environment shared team winning - everyone is about themselves
    you are on your own to get things done
    top down communication is vey bad

    Advice to Management

    Get a strong top down strategy and execute on it
    Get rid poor performers, non team players - management need to set example
    Look at your competition and put plans to address
    Figure out how to be agile, and be fast on execution
    Don't just look out for yourself, your team is important, delegate and empower
    Review your processes and cross team work...make it effie
    (just the basic strong leadership is needed)


  2. Delusional leadership

    Pros

    Lot's of interesting work, decent salary and ok benefits.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Leadership lie to each other, choose not to see problems, and don't take responsiblity.

    Advice to Management

    Start being honest, or get out and let some good people come in.
