I have never heard the kind of rumors about a vendor that I am hearing about Shoretel. Reports of unhappiness in the ranks of the workers and management problems persist in the industry.
Some comments I have been hearing is this management team was great for the IPO but can’t run the company day to day. This news may have leaked to analysts and would explain the various downgrades I have been seeing on the wires.
I normally hate to talk about rumors without doing more research than this but in my experience this level of negativity is unusual for any company and for it to come out of the blue and unsolicited from multiple sources means there could likely be fire causing the smoke.
Suffice it to say, I will write more if I hear anything.
