    Pros

    Some very good people are in isolated areas of the company.

    Cons

    Poor management in many areas, very little training, compensation and ranking biased toward high population-growth areas. Management by spreadsheet, creates incentive for unethical practices among sales force. Advancement criteria leads to unethical behavior by management.

    Advice to Management

    Include market-share as a primary component in incentive and ranking programs. Admit to product weaknesses and work to compete with quality instead of asking the sales force to offer "me-too" products to an unreceptive market. Your best products are made by someone else.
