    Pros

    Access to executives. Encourages intiative, risk taking. Fast paced work culture so things are always evolving. In some ways, like a startup

    Cons

    Some strategy is not coherent. Depends on the whim of the CEO T. J . Rodgers. Enormous amount of time spent preparing for his presentations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a longer term view of corporate strategy. Culture can be brutal so high powered employees has a tendency to leave.

    No opinion of CEO
