    Pros

    Top notch co-workers and products.

    Cons

    During transitions no thought was given to past performance, sadly it all came down to who you knew. The side taking leadership roles acted as conquerors which pushed good employees out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.
