    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    good place to work. political climate is growing for last several years inside ... it is more like IBM or GE than what it used to be - where getting the job done counted most.

    Cons

    seems most new jobs are being created non-US - even though this is a US based company. too political. too HR driven. too ISO driven.
