Here are 10 signs to tell if your company is in trouble:

  1. Your development team outnumbers your sales team.
  2. Your support department is busy, yet you don’t charge for support.
  3. You have no marketing department.
  4. Your computer hardware is falling behind.
  5. You continuously update and add new features to a product that you can’t sell to begin with.
  6. You continuously add new features to a product, but your sales department has no clue about the new features.
  7. You have no defined niche or target market, you simply shoot at anything that moves.
  8. You have no partnerships or relationships with anyone in your market.
  9. You have no clearly defined objective.
  10. Your company skips its Christmas party.
