Pros – The company has a unique product and mostly good employees.
Cons – Worst management - don't know how to manage the business. After 7 years and so much spent on its infrastructure they still haven't figured out how to sell the product. Most of all they don't know how to appreciate good hard work and they lie. They are the main cause of the company failing and no one has the courage to find a better group of people to run the business.
Advice to Senior Management – Have integrity and be honest. Have more transparency and don't lie.
Pros – Great people doing a lot of hard work on an inspired product with lots of buzz in the industry. Lots of very creative people working in disparate directions.
Cons – Lack of direction, bullying, grandstanding and general disorganization on the part of management. Maybe this is the norm in a start-up, but it is not helping the cause.
Advice to Senior Management – Pick a direction, stay with it, and try to be professional. The higher up in the organization you are, the more gracious you need to be to the people who helped you get there.
