Pros

Management has a relaxed view of people & organization and happy to see smart ideas bubble to the top. In general, there's a good concern for the well being of employees and a general sense of fair play. The organization is a mix of long termers and newbies. A general curiosity to try things out encourages out of the box thinking

Cons

It's a small company and in the end 2-3 management members make all the decisions The good is a fast decision process, the downside is sometimes they're wrong and queuing to get mindshare is often difficult. Management has never run large companies and their personal style is sometimes hard to convey across a far flung organization.

Like any older organization, there is a "friend's of Mike" CEO club, protected employees who can "do no wrong" and with such a small management team, the risk is you fall into disfavor with management and out the door you will go.

Advice to Management

It's a daily challenge in telecom with stormy seas, Tessler has certainly made more right decisions than wrong. Mike has a loyal band of followers, some of whom are less than competent, but trust is often more important. Unfortunately, this breeds a "YES" man culture which may not help Mike ultimately make the right long term decisions.
