    I worked at GENBAND full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People, leadership, market position. GENBAND's focus on R&D drives new market opportunities and positions GENBAND to remain a leader in its segment.

    Cons

    Shrinking telecommunications market which keeps GENBAND in a consolidation vs, growth mode, competitors are plentiful in many of software and hardware products that GENBAND offers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to outpace the competition


  2. "Good potential if it develops a strong leadership and talent pool"

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial and ambitious senior management team and strong product portfolio.

    Cons

    Still room for improvement on employee development, execution, and middle management capability.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strengthen the culture (customer-centric, entrepreneurial, leadership) , simplify the organisation and pay attention to bottlenecks and performance particularly in the middle-management layer. Focus on strengthening the companies differentiating advantage.
