    Pros

    People are really friendly and care about the industry they work in.

    Cons

    Leadership very weak, often regurgitating MBA textbook quotes rather than moving the company in the right direction. Market position has slipped over the years thanks in large part to this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at where the company was 10 years ago, relative to the competition, and look where it is today. It seems to have floated and grown slower than the rest. More investment in marketing is key -- moving from private to public should have taken the QA business specifically in another direction.
