    Good managers in a company that follows an old business model

    Pros

    Managers were very good at team management and leadership
    Managers who stay out of the way of engineers
    Fun people with whom to work
    Interesting R&D projects

    Cons

    This company is on the downslide and seems to be stuck in a very old business model
    When attempting to reshape it's future, the company has chosen weak projects that have no marketability and little chance of helping balance it's books
    The company wants to compete on a scale with Amazon and Google but makes tragic strategic decisions and has no sense of tactics
    While fun to work with the latest hardware toys out of Japan, these are mostly underpowered devices with weak marketability
    This company has HUGE communication problems with Japan where the American subsidiary is supposed to come up with the new ideas to help the company going forward and the Japanese headquarters has a very long approval process for any American initiative that is not often approved because of the communications gaps and the cultural differences

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to save the company, the American side has to start doing projects that are relevant, that build an ecosystem of connected products, and that are suited to facilitate the new world of FB, Google, Apple, and Amazon.
