    Pros

    Some good people remain, flexible working arrangements and the company competes in product areas that many global telecom providers continue to invest in. A good sense of camaraderie for those that remain. Benefits are reasonable.

    Cons

    Market share in key segments continues to erode. Company is very reactive and risk averse. No real longer term strategy or vision; the corporate strategy group has minimal influence at best. Ongoing announcements every 6-12 months about restructuring and head count reductions have created an environment of low morale where remaining employees continue to fear and expect the worst. Not sure, especially for companies that rely on rapid innovation to stay relevant, that there are many good examples of companies shrinking their way to prosperity. Not much excitement or confidence in the new CEO or the future. A difficult environment.

    Advice to Management

    Identify a longer term strategy and commit - be bold! You have about exhausted all your credibility and your runway to drive real change gets shorter by the quarter. Stop tolerating non performance by the organization - expect and demand excellence and reward for it. Ongoing non performance is costing market share, revenues and the future! Absolutely need to think outside the box to motivate and retain key employees.


  2. Such a shame. What a waste of good talent.

    Pros

    Middle management is good and the employees are a joy to work with. Strong sense of camaraderie even if it is born out of commiseration.

    Cons

    Executive management has missed the mark on countless occasions.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in the talent that is in-house, or, if not, at least do your homework!! How many times do you have to fail in buying another's IP before you realize that it is a failing business model.
