  9. "A company of long history now owned by a clueless ex mistress of founder and led by a self-serving industry veteran"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Excellent job security if you're in senior management. The chairman barks all the time but never bites because he's too occupied with his own personal affairs. Chairman's scandals provide good entertainment to staff. Also very nice coffee from the pantry and free soft drinks. Mad chairman not always around and the CEO is normal.

    Cons

    The chairman is erratic and paranoid. When he's in the office he makes staff uneasy by acting crazily and broadcasting his personal paranoid situations. For example some emails of his ancient extramarital affairs were leaked by pranksters. Instead of laughing it off like a normal person he went on a witch hunt within the company!

    Advice to Management

    Set personal performance targets for individuals, not just for whole company, and not just for staff below senior management. Should review (and explain to staff) what is the real role of the chairman (who is not the owner and not related to the owner) in the company.
