    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Opportunities for promotion - Leadership visibility for top performers - Competitive pay for local area

    Cons

    - 'Consensus culture'... very slow to make critical decisions - Strong focus on outsourcing of knowledge positions creates knowledge gaps - Rural area - Failure of leadership to remove poor performers

    Advice to Management

    - "Cut the fat" by removing poor performers... not outsourcing whole departments - Embrace experimentation and change - Make decisions quickly... own the decision... consensus is not always required.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance is excellent People are great Top Company/Brands in Industry

    Cons

    Constant leadership changes made it difficult to fully follow through with strategies. Direction kept changing. Middle of nowhere in Michigan. Chicago isn't that close, 2 hours to get to a major airport.

    Advice to Management

    Give better direction and support with decision making.
