Pros

Great brand, awesome tent sale, HR team was good, great move package (at least it was before venture capital owned them), excellent distribution system, technologically advanced.

Cons

Division was shut down due to competition from China, and direct outsourcing by our customers. Brand is good but the venture capatilists rolling it all together and leveraging that much debt into one company can't be good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on employees is good but always can be better - don't forget about management trainee programs and bringing in young stars that make for future contributors.
