    Pros

    Great brand well known in its industry, and it impressively markets itself.

    Cons

    George Ball is not someone a good employee can trust. To a guy like this, a contract isn't worth the paper it's printed on, especially if he suddenly and without warning determines that he has no use for your contributions. He has the attention span of a gnat and will take forever to make decisions. While initially he can be extremely charming, he is about as vicious as they come. Thanks to his ineptitude, the company has been in the rocks more than a few times in the past decade only to be saved by more intelligent management that does its best to keep him out of the loop. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he bought the company with his inheritance, and generally suffers a laughable reputation in his industry. Avoid this company and retain your sanity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find something for Mr. Ball to do that keeps him out of the building for months at a time.
