    Pros

    Large installed base, strong security products for PC's, market leader in many geographies, access to many sales channels

    Cons

    Old, stodgy management; passive/aggressive senior leadership style, senior leaders are cowardly in giving proper feedback, lots of complacency (parking lots start filling out at 10/11, start empying out at 4/5)

    Advice to Management

    None - there's a new CEO who will probably rattle the many chains that need rattling

    Pros

    Great team members - market leading products.

    Technology on the forefront.

    Cons

    Management are completely out of touch with the challenges, the sales teams are facing.
    They do not show any respect or understanding - are hardly even visiable.

    I have never in my life worked in a company with such an incompetent senior sales management team.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and show respect.
