    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits. Free fruit twice a week and snacks at employee meetings in good times. Middle management is good, allows employees lot of latitude without micro management.

    Cons

    Upper management is bloated. Too many VPs trying to run day to day operations instead of figuring out long term strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat in upper management for lean times. Lose non performing and revenue dissipating groups without playing favorites. Resist old boys club type think.
