Average Talent...Internally focused

Senior Management (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

ProsAccess to projects you never dreamed you'd work on, just because you were in the right meeting or expressed interest. Unfortunately, most projects go to people who, like you, have no experience and do a mediocre job. Open door policy results in easy access to any executive.

ConsThe only leaders with Fortune 500 experience are gone...too different? Seem to prefer middle of the road educational credentials, so my colleagues aren't too intellectually inspiring. COO and CEO need to LISTEN and accept what info walks in their doors. Corporate Coach is a former broker, serves as the messenger between executives.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the Coach; LISTEN to feedback and input; hire people NOT like yourselves to inspire change, growth and challenge! Benefits are among the worst for this size company.
