    I worked at Gateway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenges and rewards. Impacted entire industry. High job satisfaction. Would work in that environment again with no problem. Fair pay typically.

    Cons

    Spread out management and with it competing goals and initiatives. To much trust in outside execs brought in that eventually made unsound decisions that contributed to Gateway's downfall and eventual sale.

    Advice to Management

    Buy it back from Acer.
