    Pros

    awesome people in the front lines and management positions. Passionate and smart. Really smart.

    cool tech and place in market.

    Cons

    Sr. Execs only care about their individual bonuses and moving work to low cost countries to get those bonuses. Too shortsighted.

    Advice to Management

    allow operations to improve or transfer - - losing the long term employees and their tribal knowledge ( In EU or US) means hiring lesser replacements elsewhere. 40% cheaper and 60% less effective. Making money by starving the present, not building the future.
