Pros – Allows one to work independently, without micro-managing. Office support is constant, and ready to help.
Cons – Upper management not always truthful. The right hand often does not know what the left hand is doing. President does not identify with the pulse of employees.
Advice to Senior Management – Do not outright lie to your employees. President needs to be there for other employees, not just for himself.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
