    Pros

    Decent benefits, good stock plan, decent people on the working floors

    Cons

    Over the last ten years Senior Management has been treating the Customer as their personal piggy bank, running up the billed hours in order to make sales quotas and executive bonuses (and the Customer knows it). Management has invested little to nothing in actual product development (has not developed any tech demonstration platforms in 10+ years), and refuses to train employees in anything (except mandatory security refreshers). The VP of Engineering has been physically escorted off The Customer's premises on at least two occasions. After two consecutive multi-billion dollar flops, The Customer has recently informed the rest of the world that they don't need and don't want the product anymore. Division recently laid off ~200 people, cuts are expected to reach at least 1000 employees before year's end. In short, the division is going out of business, and Management is still trying to pretend that nothing is wrong.

    Advice to Management

    It is probably too late to save the division. But if anyone really wanted to try, the first step would be to fire anyone in the division whose title includes President, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Senior Director, Director, and Senior Manager (yes, that's six levels of senior management, compared to four levels of floor employees). Next, bring in leaders from successful divisions to run operations until adequate candidates can be found and developed from inside. Third, make sure that the new leadership actually is co-located with the people they lead; remove the palaces in Mahogany Row and revoke all other executive privileges. Fourth, fix the time accounting system and remove the other administrative roadblocks. Finally, establish *and fund* a dedicated new product development team with a dedicated procurement arm (separate and independent from Production supply chain management).
