    Pros

    Good sales and support team. Liked my immediate supervisors.

    Cons

    In their scramble to regain a 50% business loss due to an executive scandal, confusion permeated the organization. New orgs every few months, Middle Managers way over their heads due to double promotions to retain folks after a mass employee exodus. Had 3 different bosses and assignments in 18 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stabilize, focus on solid delivery and give sales a chance to rebuild relationships/business.
