    Pros

    Conducive environment for learning and professional Development. People are valued and that comes across through leadership. Great mid size company to wok for.

    Acquisition to western digital has created some challenges. Scaling at the higher level brings some complex problems to solve and some leadership styles are not ideal.

    Work out issues with teams, be more collaborative, break down silos and empower people to run the business. Its your responsibility to point folks in the right direction.
