    "Great company on a cost cutting mission to irrelevancy"

      I worked at SDL full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Exciting products, global company offering chance to work with people around the world

      Cons

      SDL has jerked back and forth from being on course with solid management, to off course, to on course and back off course. Unfortunately it's off course and doing drastic uninformed cost cutting to appease investors upset about falling market valuation.

      Advice to Management

      Quit and allow more experienced leadership to take your place. That's rough but I saw a strong company ruined because the inexperience CEO misspeak on earnings expectation that weren't met and the market price fell, requiring uncalled for cost cutting.
