Approves of CEO

Pros

VP leadership seems to be in place now, just need someone above to incentivize them to work together.

Cons

Departmental technology silos strained ability to get anything done across the boundaries.
Managers did little to discourage silos and so implicitly furthered silos.
Some groups attempted to work with others, but a few really self-interested apples spoil the bunch.

Advice to Management

Look into your director's performance--is there quality there or is it all just perception?
How do they direct their reports and how have their reports responded to their direction?
Do you want to accept the status quo or take a chance at success? So far the former is the rule of thumb.
Hire a CTO to provide a unified technology vision.

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Decent Salary
    Great coworkers (with the exception of management)

    Cons

    There is little to no training, your quota will increase as soon as you sign your offer letter, majority of your time will be spent prospecting internally with executives to get them to approve pricing that is already about 50% more than the industry average. This all leaves little to no time to prospect for new business. Account bases...don't even bother trying for one even though it was probably promised during your interview because they have been picked dry.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to potential employees to get them to work there, don't stand in front of the entire company and say "we will not quit on you, this job is hard and it takes a good 13 months to ramp up" because you do not mean it! Support new reps and give them more training so they have a chance at making it!

    Pros

    small teams, good people, reasonable autonomy to do the job and manage my time as I saw fit.

    Cons

    Senior management's due diligence on M&A was shoddy, This caused massive transition pains and ultimately layoffs of many employees resulting in higher work loads for those remaining. Those executives have also been replaced.
