    Pros

    * Wonderful, supportive culture across all locations and business units * Real commitment to flexibility, diversity & inclusion * Market leader in everything it touches & willing to invest resources continually to stay that way * Large enough to provide a lot of opportunities * Senior leadership is genuinely enthusiastic about what they do and company mission; also genuinely good leaders (both together... is rare)

    Cons

    * Remarkably siloed by country for such a global company * Addicted to major reorganizations every Q4 (though last year's may have been big enough to hold off for a year) * Keeps trying to define one single message for the entire gigantic corporate entity (answer company! no, we're a software company! no, we're a platform company!) when no one outside the company cares * Reorganizations have only made the company... more Byzantine and siloed; used to be two big business units that never talked to each other (and didn't need to), but now has three big business units that are set up to not talk to each other but actually DO need to

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to every random thought the expensive McKinsey consultants have -- they just want the money. Listen instead to your actual employees; there are a lot of great ideas to build value for customers that aren't "hand the keys to the company over to Sales and hope for massive growth." Stick with the current org structure for at least three years -- tinker with a bit, obviously, but call a moratorium on... selling off major pieces of the company and giving everyone left new jobs from the top down. Remember that, when you focus on customers, our customers are PEOPLE, not organizations. We have personal relationships with people in specific roles with specific needs, and must understand those people, not try to make grand plans to sell everything to every enterprise just because we have a big bag of products. You are smart, devoted people. You're running a great company. You don't need to try to swallow the apple in one bite.
