    Pros

    Very flexible work environment with relatively low workload stress. A lot of freedom in day-to-day work. Still staffed by good people at the ground level.

    Cons

    Work environment has slipped since the last re-org (from groups by product to groups by function). Some groups are mired in contention over which group is really in charge. Products that aren't growing aren't providing growth opportunities for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on the fundamentals - find problems customers will pay us to solve and solve them.
