Approves of CEO

Pros

smart people
nice people
decent professional development/learning opps if you're self-directed
some interesting projets
fun outings occasionally
company possibly on the upswing

Cons

culture of scarcity and fear of layoffs
changes business models frequently
management was (changing w/Tim Armstrong) risk averse and inclined to blatantly copy competitors rather than consider interesting creative design solutions/directions
need to defend yourself for working there and not being a hack with no other options

Advice to Management

Keep up efforts w/rebranding and building new brand loyalty; buil doff core strengths of the existing loyal demographic and give them an updated experience they can be happy with; don't dumb down the experience any more than it is
