    Pros

    Very solid technologies
    Strong engineering teams
    Strong community
    Excellent customer relationships

    Cons

    Some stovepipes are very evident
    Very little communication outside of one's own division
    Inter-department sabotage was not unknown
    A distinctive bias toward education over achievement when looking to promote internally.

    Advice to Management

    Promote cross communication between your engineering teams. This could surely create products that will add more value than the sum of its parts.
    Understand that promotions should be based on merit, not just education.
