Pros

Well respected product, long tenured employees with excellent knowledge of target markets. Well established and loyal customer base create very steady and reliable recurring revenue stream.

Cons

Economic downturn has heavily impacted target markets. Future direction of the company toward new growth markets or innovative products that will propel growth is not clear, as there does not appear to be any new, innovative thinking that will drive future growth. Service model has not adapted over time, and perceived value to customers is in question. Slightly lower comp plans than is typical in most other software/service sales positions.

Advice to Management

Return to a sincere "customer first" support model that delivers real value to existing customers based upon their stated desires. Look for growth markets and technologies that will broaden the offering and drive future expansion in new directions (difficult to achieve, but critical to future success). Honor the contributions of long-term employees who have built the foundation.
