Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You can read newspaper, browse web and enjoy your day there without anyone checking your work;
you get free benefit by telling lies such as I am sick

Cons

ideas are usually not respected;
personal contribution not rewarded;
VP makes all the say, even when they make stupid decisions - and by the way, you are often the last one to know anything about it;
people are let go without giving a second chance

Advice to Management

Len oversees everything, but he is too old and old-fashioned that he barely gives a shXt to employee's complains;
and, he takes a close control of budget, so don't ever expect him to give you raise, or even support your green card application!

    Pros

    Interesting Work, Interesting Industry. I would recommend this company to a friend if they had an offer for a job that they find interesting and if it would be an advancement for them vs. their previous position.

    Cons

    Virtually everyone I knew there who had a significant idea for a product or service expansion had the idea or product taken away from them, ostensibly so that the upper management could keep whatever profits came of it, but none of those things ever came to anything, and multiple people have left and formed or joined thriving companies in related investment space. Do not go there if you are giving up significant salary, benefits or anything else that is important to your relationship.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how you could have kept the best and the brightest of those who have left, and become successful in their own, or other firms. The Koch Brothers call it Market Based Management, and look at how successful they have become.
