    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SDL

    Pros

    Good solid products with well know referenceable accounts. Co-workers are helpful and jump in when needed at a moment's notice.

    Cons

    Change executive management every 1.5 - 2 years and then fail to let them execute on their vision. I was there 5 years and the executives were constantly being replaced. Now a board member runs the company while they look for a new CEO. Upper management tends to drink the cool aid and not hear what is going in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want the company to be when you grow up. Spin off your non-core businesses and actually put a plan in place and see it through to fruition.
