    Pros

    Lot of smart talent and people are generally very nice.

    Cons

    Leadership has no idea what they are doing. They come up with an idea (usually by Bain or McKinsey), sell that to the organization, get everyone moving, then dump is after a year or two. When asked why, everyone skirts around the issue. There is no authenticity or accountability. The new incoming CEO is a jerk. He is not people's person, arrogant, and leads with fear.

    Advice to Management

    Be a user of the the product you are out there selling so you will realize the kind of crap that gets put out there. Also, great leader don't tell you what to do...but show you how its done. Stay true to the value, not preach those value and not practice. E.g. Devin few months ago during split announcement went out on a limb to say that organization will be hiring post split. And that hge has lofty goals and he has no plans for layoffs. Last week eBay announced layouts and Devin arrogantly told everyone it was his idea. This is not what we call open and honest.
