    Pros

    Great market presence in the niche space
    Legacy
    Work Life balance
    Pay

    Cons

    Hardly any cloud strategy, it's a matter of time that the others will catch up
    Forget innovation, the product strategy is taking a few steps back
    Time to market is amazingly slow, not acceptable for a cash rich company
    Getting too Bureaucratic, especially in the product and finance teams

    Advice to Management

    take a good, hard look - there are two many excess baggages that needs to be thrown away - people and processes
