Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Fast paced and constantly changing processes
Good benefits that include use of onsite gym

Cons

Long hours and not very flexible - must be available 24/7
Difficult to get vacation approved
Not much room for advancement and limited career path discussions
Difficult to move to other departments as all requests to apply to other positions require manager approval and they are often denied
Not very female friendly, all upper management is male and it's a "good ole boy" atmosphere
Management thoughts and ideas cannot be challenged

Advice to Management

Listen to the lower level professionals not just upper management as they don't always tell you what is really happening.
