    Pros

    Great place to contirbute ides and push concepts through to prototype. Good mobility options within the organization that include out of country postings.

    Cons

    Top-heavy, inward facing management. Spurts of brilliance followed by imaginable incompetence should be cause for concern to anyone looking to work there or... acquire them.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that meetings in board rooms don't reflect the reality of the market place. Often, your customers (even the unhappy ones) are a good source of inspiration.

    Difficulty cracking the code on the new BI technology reality (open source solutions, etc.)
    IBM can make Cognos even more bureaucratic

    Advice to Management

    Don't discount field realities, Ottawa does not have the sum of all knowledge
