Great company to work for, except for the CEO

Manager (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsOblong really cares about its employees - initially they served lunch 3 days a week, provided health insurance and paid into an HSA to counter the high deductible. Everyone was great...except the CEO who should not have been in that position.

ConsThe CEO rules with an iron fist, and is passive aggressive at the same time. He is not responsive to suggestions or negotiation when he disagrees, and marginalizes employees that he disagrees with.
He is not open to listening or allowing others to manage in a productive way. This aspect of the company is the one thing that has driven it into the ground.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet your employees do what they were hired to do in a democratic way. Ruling by marginalizing extremely talented people is destructive and destroys morale and performance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
