The tech the company have is great, some smart acquisitions were made back in 2010, Prevx and BrightCloud. There is a great opportunity here, they have the tech. Some management changes of late will improve the outlook no end.
Management in HQ leaves a lot to be desired, poor decisions have cost them good staff. Aggressive growth plans meant tough quotas, no reality baked into them at all (hence losing good staff) Could develop more products/improve current offerings.
Advice to Management
More indians, less chiefs, too many managers trying to insulate themselves from poor results.
