    Pros

    Some sincere people left. Good R&D.

    Cons

    Marketing community has excessive amounts of politics and unnecessary layers management, Marketing Managers demonstrate poor leadership skills by lording it over staff rather than encouraging collaboration. Over emphasis on hierarchy and lack of innovation from the so called "leaders" is creating a drag on the culture in what would otherwise could be a more collaborative and productive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sack the Marketing Managers that aren't getting their hands dirty and developing briefs and effective strategies. Why? because leaders in small to mid tier firms competitors are capturing market share because THEIR leaders ARE PRODUCT INNOVATORS, as are their Marketers! That's why you're losing market share.

    Pros

    Management doesn't track you unless you talk to them. You're left to do your job to the best of your ability without interference from those above you.

    Cons

    Management doesn't help you with problems at all. Even when approaching my manager, I was told they couldn't and wouldn't help me with medical problems I was having interfering with my work.
