    Pros

    Smart, generous, extremely talented co-workers who always want to do the right thing to create a high quality product as well as help those around them become better engineers.

    Constantly challenging and ever evolving industry.

    Cons

    Shifting focus and unclear direction from upper management.

    A perceived lack of trust by upper management contributing to a growing culture of fear that prevents the team from being engaged and motivated with the shifting directions.

    Lack of engagement and acknowledgement by Aruba CEO and leadership.

    Lack of pertinent rewards yet unrelenting asks for sacrifice and heroics.

    Organizational silos prevents development team from understanding what the customer needs and wants as well as prevent teams from learning from each other.

    Organizational and cultural resistance to change that slows or blocks attempts for continuous improvement.

    Advice to Management

    See the cons...fix it. Lead your organization. Get connected to your work force and build some empathy with what you've been asking of them.
