    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Financial backing of NTT and strong name recognition of NTT

    Cons

    Non-innovative Senior leadership team, company has been lagging the market for the past 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making real improvements to the company, stop the politics! Provide clear vision and direction for the company and communicate that to everyone within the organization so they can align around a common goal. Improve the backend systems, products, and support quality, these issues continue to provide challenges for Verio to be competitive in the market.
