Advice to Management

This advice is really to SVP's since low level exec and line management do not really have any leadership impact and merely are in react mode to save their own jobs. Stop the short term looting of a once great company and invest in the long term focus on customers and employees as an asset instead of liabilities. This may mean actually leading the company and forgoing personal wealth targets. Any company that predicts EPS 5 years in the future is intoxicated on it's own current performance and is just seeking to become an investment tool - not a company. Stop buying back shares to buoy the price and taking profits from your own stock awards, rsu's and bonuses. On demand, smarter planet, big data, watson - stop with phrases and start creating something of value!
