Pros

-Dynamic new CEO with very good ideas and style
-Strong balance sheet and core products
-Strong brand
-Changing payments landscape is making work much more interesting and challenging
-Potential to be a really great place to work

Cons

-There is a very strong existing culture that limits internal communication, questions, and risk taking
-New CEO is trying to change culture. This leads to 1) uncertainty in may parts of the organization and 2) Challenging internal politics
-Risk that new CEO may not be successful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set up means to hear what all levels of the company are thinking and convince employees they are not risking career success by speaking out.

    Pros

    Compensation and work-life balance is among the best (except for peak seasons, which is normal in the financial and retail industries). Future vision and change strategy in place is great and if executed correctly, will be an even better place to work.

    Cons

    Excessive management layers and bureaucracies. No true channel for bottoms-up communication. Observing and learning from successful companies (e.g. Google, Apple, Walmart) and avoiding pitfalls from companies that failed (Kodak, Polaroid, American Automobile Manufacturers) is almost non-existent because of too much pride and ego in the excessive senior management layers. Really score in writing TPS reports and justifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk. The vision and strategy in place is great. Execute and pay attention to people who does the real work in the company.
