Pros

Very innovative products. Company is constantly on the cutting edge with its offerings.

Cons

Company lacks direction and seems layoffs/RIFs happen at least 2-3 times a year.

Advice to Management

Leverage the existing technology as it's vastly superior to what else is out there. Stop constantly "right-sizing" the company
