Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Company is based in San Diego - there are worse places to work - and there is demonstrated need in the market for content security.

Cons

Poor leadership and corporate culture has created a poisonous environment - one that stifles innovation and execution.

Advice to Management

The market, the technology, the business, and the employees have all changed. Yet the company still isn't growing and is in disrepair. Sometimes the man looking in the mirror is the last one to figure it out.
