    working environment, benefits, pay, colleagues

    Old-fashioned go to market strategy, losing the battle in cloud and SaaS, management is living in the past, lack of accountability

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and modernise the business. Make sure your actions match your words and the focus on key parts of the business is matched by the incentives to sell them.
