        Repeated layoffs; Senior executive team not that great; Employee morale low because of lack of direction; Not much innovation happening; High attrition

        Advice to Management

        Invest in emerging technologies; Do not treat employees [especially the long time ones] as expendable workers; Try to get the morale high

          Pros

          Innovative technology, good people to work with, great culture

          Cons

          Wow, this is difficult, so many. 1) leadership (that term is used very loosely). 2) The choices leadership makes. 3) Laying off senior people (very short sighted). 4) Offshoring most functions to inferior talent. 5) Milking the company dry at the top and leaving crumbs for those at the bottom.

          Advice to Management

          Get rid of the CEO (Finally happened-Lose the faith) and anyone he brought in who is still there.
