What suggestions do you have for management?

"There seem to be many cults within the company. Too frequently the compete against each other. For example Java Soft was a stand-alone division making great market penetration however, the decision was made that they were too successful and were brought back into the center-line development effort of Sun Microsystems. They should have been left as a business unit with their own traceable revenuies."
