    Good people in a disorganized organization

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros*Many employees know their job well and are supportive of others
    *Strong portfolio of telecoms infrastructure equipment and software solutions
    *Competent Services offering around own products

    Cons*Difficult times with strong competition from chinese vendors
    *Constant reorganizations
    *Heavy beaurocracy/processes mean focus on customer is lost

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart with the customer, then build your organization around that. Avoid unneeded processes/procedures. Let sales and marketing focus more on customers and working with them proactively rather than on internal issues.

    Poor processes, poor questions

    Head of Department (Current Employee) Fleet, South East England, England

    ProsWas offered the job, pay was negotiable and even included a welcome bonus as they couldn't match what i was asking for. Company has great people with great skills, good collaboration between most forks on an individual basis. Formal communication channels are useless

    ConsCompany is continuously restructuring/reorganising. Moving people from one department to another with no real strategy or benefit. They no longer invest in the future and have resigned themselves to trying to go head to head with the Chinese on cost and innovation. Not a wise strategy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop reorganising and focus on investment and growth.
    Completely replace the entire Services management structure with people who understand services. Build a complete separate business for services that isn't linked to the other global/regional structures. Or just sell it off and be done, the wider company simply doesn't understand it.
    Don't go head to head with the Chinese, you ain't going to win.
    Completely renew you software R&D processes, they're still in the 1990s and your lifecycle timeline proves it.
