As a workplace, Datacom has a lot of potential, but needs to sort out issues in its mid-tier leadership team. Datacom's strength is also its greatest weakness. Being a technology company, every problem is solved through a technology lens. Many issues however, such as effective change, clarity in strategy, and effective decision-making (and commitment to a course of action) are human challenges.
Unfortunately, I believe that in many ways, Datacom is ripe for disruption with smaller, nimbler players nipping at their heels and the Gorillas (MSFT, AWS, Google) moving further deeper into professional services and IT outsourcing by "automating out" the need for some professional services. It is not alone amongst the T2s in terms of this threat.
Datacom has a huge opportunity / potential to go from good to great. It has some remarkable people within its walls. It is let down by an ineffective middle management layer.
