    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Snacks, centrally located office, modern office

    Cons

    Horrible compensation No clear promotion or feedback schedule. No transparency on decisions (they're made in secret, and for example, the CMO is remote and only in Chicago office a few times a year). Promotion occurs due to loyalty not merit. Every employee is constantly looking over her shoulder as there is no security or clarity on decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Every c-suite exec should be ON-SITE in the office. There should be REQUIRED management experience for mid-managers to take over roles. Hard work and results should be rewarded above loyalty and personal opinions.
