It is the CEO's world, you are just living in it

Pros

Some good employees who really do care about the business
Very relaxed dress code
Cool location

Cons

The place is a revolving door- nobody stays for very long
What candidates and employees are told about the company is usually not reality once you start working with leadership
Ownership really makes it a miserable place to work day to day
CEO leader lacks communication skills to deal with people or clearly define anything from his expectations of them to their goals. One day you are a saint and the next day he is telling you what a disappointment you are
Long range goals and planning change consistently, very frustrating
There is no trust between the employees themselves and the one person running the company
Office is really depressing, dead silent most of the time and strange colored walls

    Pros

    Good location and free parking. Some very nice people

    Cons

    Watch you back. There is a lot of back stabbing, double talk, and mis-information. The CEO's ego will drive you nuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the CEO stay on the development side and stay out of marketing.

    Pros

    Great employees, cool location in city, small so some potential to make a big impact in the company, able to learn a lot, benefits are decent

    Cons

    CEO is extremely difficult to work with, blames everyone but himself for the issues of the company, is up and down like a roller coaster and has limited couth with no social skills. Employees are hired to lead and make money for the company, but are never truly allowed to help improve their surroundings. It is a 30 person company with one person attempting to run everything based solely on their idea of the way things should be (what "should be" changes on a whim and will. Very depressing place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like professional adults. There no need to chain them to the desks, stress them out and obsess over spreadsheets. Let them do what they do best and get out of the way.
