    Pros

    Great history in the early days of the telecommunications market with good technology, if they can engage customers to sell it.

    Incompetent management. Financial instability makes it risky for customers to accept anything but commodity products from this vendor.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new blood with fresh ideas, or fold your tent and go home.
