    Pros

    Flex time and flexible work from home philosophy. Staffed with highly motivated and dedicated employees. Global reach. Great health benefits. Large embedded base.

    Cons

    Process improvements are overdue. Agile scrum is killing business. Stop chasing customers that are not profitable. Cubicle environment is noisy and distracting.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics and ditch fads. Stick to and sell core competencies. Profits, not revenue.
