    I worked at SeaChange full-time

    Pros

    Not many "pros" still exist. New leadership has never run a company before, and they have no concept of how bad they are failing (or how to fix it). Competitors are winning head-to-head, and their biggest customers are leaving them. They stopped innovating and delivering quality products years ago. This once was a proud place to work, but this company has now become a Harvard case study on what not to do. Best people are leaving and/or already gone.

    Cons

    - Poor management
    - Unwilling to develop/invest in any new product/service without guaranteed revenue to offset the investment first.
    - Zero product management
    - Bonuses nonexistent for years
    - Zero concern for the employees
    - Sales drives the business direction of the company
    - Ineffective people are put into positions to succeed the quality people that leave the organization.

    Pros

    I don't believe there are any pros currently, if the company does stay above water then there may be some.

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the top level. Founder/Entrepreneur stayed in the lead roll for 5 years too long.
    Tries to perform 125% of the work with 75% of the resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and go with it. Fire the "Yes" men who make promises to large customers that can't be fulfilled and ultimately result in losing those customers. Lost C0MC@ST, V3RIZ0N, soon to lose another...
