    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The organization is part of a very large corporation that has excellent material quality and reputation at being the leader in their industry. Their worldwide coverage gives them the opportunity to follow business wherever it may go.

    Cons

    Worldwide, there is no synergy. They compete with each other in all markets and frequently sell their own products to competitors. Locally, the corporation has no plan for success. They are on their 4th CEO in 7 years and have relied too heavily on their incompetent VP's. Many good middle managers with forward thinking have come and gone due to their VP's.

    Advice to Management

    Create a plan for success and implement it. Review people on all levels and purge the bad performers who have been hanging on too long.
