    Pros

    A corporation being a self serving entity will generally guarantee stockholders a fairly decent profit as long as they realize this type of management will be fairly short lived.

    Cons

    This type of management is generally accomplished by monopolizing on the work done by the non-management employees. The employees who generate the income will suffer from the excesses of the upper level management - who generally do not generate any capital for the company. This will last only as long as it takes for the better and more seasoned employees to find another job. By doing this it will strip the corporation of their experienced employees and generally leave them short of people to do the work. This will cause them to start losing market share which in turn will cause them to start losing revenue and the value of the stock will drop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your field employees with the respect they deserve. Be honest with your employees. You push ethics but then you do not practice them when it comes to dealing with your own employees. You maintain upper level management salaries while cutting the salaries of the people who actually earn the revenue. While the employees you are mistreating may not have an "earth science" degree, they aren't stupid. There are many reasons they didn't get their degrees. But they are still highly trained and qualified and many will be leaving the company as soon as they find another job.
