    Pros

    Local management is good and cares about employees. The people are very good.

    Cons

    Upper Level management's vision is not very clear. Probably also need to narrow the product portfolio and execute more effectively.
    People are working too hard and need to exercise better work life balance. This just creates a bad environment.
    Many chiefs that don't understand product development along with a lack of clear leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Need a clear vision along with products that support it. 3-5 year product road map would be good.
