    Pros

    The people were the best asset of this company. People communicated well, had fun, were engaged and sincerely enjoyed the product. The product is a great product and a great concept. Just can't get the senior execs & BOD to make up their mind on the appropriate direction of the company.

    Cons

    Growth was great, but management at the highest levels (read CEO) caused systematic failure of proven, working systems & sales. Changed market direction under false pretenses, causing the near failure of the company. Company churned through employees due to constant change in direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics. Find the direction and stay on it! Stay focused. Take advantage of the people who are dedicated to the success of this company and keep them.

    Pros

    Learning the details of a specialized and surprisingly complex industry.

    Cons

    Very poor morale, extremely poor leadership starting with the Board of Directors from inception to date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe treating the company as something other than a hobby or a way to employ your friends and family might give it a chance. Nah, never mind, too late.
