    Advice to Management

    Get back to focusing on the customer by employing and developing people with real experience and a desire to get their hands dirty. Your team has lost touch with your customer base.

    Pros

    Good people, good reputation in the industry, very ethical, solid financially.

    Cons

    Very weak at helping people with career growth, despite all the talk about it. Tend to ignore people over 45 yrs old, even though they have the most experience.
    Catering to youth and minorities is important but shouldn't be your core competency! Way too much time spent here, it will backfire. Need more focus on the customers, the people who are paying the bills, and the sales organization, the people who are creating all that revenue for all those salaries.

    Advice to Management

    No one should ever be in Sales Management without first being a sales engineer, on the street, gaining that valuable customer facing experience.
