    People, other than upper management the employees are smart, engaged, and committed
    Benefits are competitive
    Flexibility - telecommuting is permitted

    Cons

    Upper management rarely communicates information to the masses
    Legacy employees are viewed as a detriment instead of tapping into their extensive knowledge base

    Advice to Management

    Somehow upper management forgets that LWW publishes books! Yes, the market dynamics are changing but don't forget what pays the bills!

    Pros

    There are few opportunities for software development in this area; this is hte only real gig for this type of work.

    Cons

    A lot of management-by-default instead of decisiveness. Management has a tendency to involve itself too deeply in daily tasking (tactical) rather than training, developing and nurturing the resource talent to allow them to take on the truly big picture (strategic) vision for moving ahead and innovating.
    Concentration is on creating then putting out fires rather than smooth and organized processes that will prevent fires. It creates a rather herky-jerky (often counterproductive) work environment that is way overstressed when compared to productivity levels.

    Advice to Management

    "Forward Progress" is not always good; be willing to retreat from bad decisions.
    When measuring and acknowledging success give credit to those who accomplished it rather than only the manager; when measuring and remonstrating for failure, include management. You also need to hold manager accountable and require commitments; them committing other people does not count, they must commit themselves and the resources (personnel, physical, and physical) they are tasked with.
    Provide adequate (even minimal) training; saying that a resource will “pick it up as they go” is insufficient.
    You must measure performance against the job description into which people are hired.
    Provide succession planning and career path guidance.
    Temp to hire positions should be honored; hire your temps on when headcount opens instead of keeping a temp on and then hire someone else to fill the headcount. If they are good enough to keep, they are good enough to hire.
