    I worked at CDO (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of smart, hard working people. Interesting work in a variety of business areas..

    Cons

    No real leadership at the senior level. Everything is reactionary and very little evidence of strategic, visionary leadership. No real upward advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Consider who are in what positions and honestly decide if they are there because they are the best person or they are there because they have been with CDO a long time or worse yet, that no one wants to deal with the mismatch.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is slightly better than unemployment compensation

    Cons

    Unresponsive leadership, no matter how many time you call or email no one gets back to you. Low pay well below industry standard rates. Dreadful benefits, awful administrative support. No real leadership at the senior level.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the workforce

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at CDO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Good co-workers. Decent work environment.

    Cons

    No leadership. No vision. Poor communication. Poor management. High turnover. This company will probably not survive the next five years.

    Get outside help with leadership and management. You have no idea what to do with your human capital. If you can't or won't lead this company, sell it.
