    Pros

    Great people -- smart and earnest. Pride in the company, its products and what it stands for. Evident desire to be the best

    Cons

    Very siloed. In the midst of a lot of change, a tendency towards infighting for "my turf." Some major changes poorly managed, due to limited cross-functional planning.

    Advice to Management

    Start an OGSM and discuss it with all employees ... not just where the company is going but how we're going to get there ... to create pride & accountability. Your people are capable of performing at a much higher level, in the right culture

    Pros

    It was a like a work family of good people who grew their employees and fostered a team-oriented culture. They paid well and treated people well. They rewarded hard work and loyalty.

    Cons

    They aren't very good to employees now. They work harder and longer than they should. It's not a family-oriented culture that grows people.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old school way of doing things. Hire the right people for the right job, treat them well and they will be loyal and help the company do well.
