Approves of CEO

Pros

Many different kinds of technology to learn
Many different projects to work on if you know what's available
Fairly good work/life balance
No mass layoffs (lately)

Cons

Poor project planning/management in some areas of the company
Limited upper management visibility into how good a job you're doing
Your reviews are always measured against other people in your group. If you're new to a project, people with less experience than you can get much better reviews than you while you're catching up.
Very little management interest in training.

Advice to Management

Become more realistic in your planning.
Provide more training on new technology
Understand that newcomers to a large project have a learning curve and don't penalize them for having to learn technology or detailed system behavior.

    Place personnel in management postitions who have time to understand the real job tasks employees perform
    Do not implement tools that don't work.
    Fix contracts database as it is the main cause of employee frustrations
