    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Hightail full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many talented employees who have the skills to succeed
    A consumer product with a good track record

    Cons

    Constant shuffling of executives
    No Enterprise product or sales expertise
    Consumer product pretending to be enterprise
    Sales leadership is non-existent
    Poor track record of retaining good employees (employees are constantly waiting to be fired)

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new sales management
    Determine if you are really going to play in the enterprise space, and if so, invest the right resources (people, product, budget, expertise, etc)
