Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Potential to work on some of the better projects. Reasonably good resources, technology, etc. Personnel are good to work with.

Cons

This is an organization that churns through employees and managers as if they were a commodity. Hard to understand how yesterday's CEO, division president, or office leader is no longer suitable in any capacity. Staff are tossed aside to meet weekly numbers. Turnover is probably as high as any in the industry and too much of it is due to layoffs. This is not the company it was 10 years ago. Today the only concern is profitability. And yet, after a decade of 20% annual growth the company has the same number of emplyees it had in 2000. If you go to work here, keep your resume fresh, your options open, and pack light.

Advice to Management

Give up the dogma and rhetoric. Walk around the floor and talk to the people who actually do the work. Stop talking about people being the most important asset and start believing it. Remember, every person you mistreat or fire could be a future, potential client. Few will miss the opportunity to not select you.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Work - life balance was excellent for the "middle of the day" doctor appt Pay was competitive compared to similar positions Management is good and supportive

    Cons

    Low office morale where I worked Internet filters are so strict they hinder productive work Had trouble maintaining senior engineers

    Advice to Management

    Management should reduce the internet filters as they're frankly ridiculous and should try to retain their top talent so that younger engineers can learn.
