    Disapproves of CEO

    Bekins is definitely a successful appliance company and the in-home automation side of the business was and is before it’s time. Nothing can be disputed about the success of this business.

    Cons

Because of this there is a lot of competitiveness, backbiting and very little trust. He has a reputation for excessive termination and therefore excessive staff turnover.
