    I have been working at Kansas City Zoo full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and fun to see children enjoying themselves.

    Cons

    The CEO is verbally abusive, rude, and demeaning to his staff. He cares more about putting on a nice face to the Board of Directors, city and county personnel, and legislatures, to gain more tax money than he does about the zoo employees or animals. The citizens of Jackson and Clay counties have the right to know where their tax money is going. The CEO has a "private" wine and liquor stash estimated at about $10,000 on Zoo property that was all purchased with tax payer money, and only used for the CEO when he has friends, colleagues, and someone he is looking to suck money out of visit the Zoo. I specifically asked if this alcohol was for fundraising events and was told no, it is the CEO's private stash. The Board might also be interested to know that when they are served lunch at a Board meeting that the CEO's staff is directed to purchase inexpensive boxed lunches so the Zoo doesn't appear to be spending frivolously but when potential contributors are at the Zoo for a luncheon there is no budget for what they are served. The CEO bullies his direct reports by demeaning them, controlling conversations, and by verbally attacking them. I have personally witnessed him bring one of his directors to tears, tell another director to "get the hell out of my office", and throw a document at another employee. I think the gorillas are better behaved than he is. As HR has only been in place for a few months, the CEO has never been held accountable for his behavior. It's about time he gets anger management counseling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to clean house, starting with the CEO and his "private" liquor stash and spend tax money on caring for the animals not the CEO's ego and private agenda.
