    Cons

    - Massive holes in leadership right now
    - Morale within certain departments very low. No communication and so many employees have left due to uncertainty and mood

    Advice to Management

    - Act rapidly to stop the loss of intellectual property and consider team activities to improve employee morale
    - Communicate plans for layoffs, new leadership, and timing to alleviate FUD
    - Promotion from within has always been an issue in many teams. The tendency is to bring in external hires when talented resources already exist internally.
