    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Good benefits package and fair compensation
    - Latitude in what you're allowed to do
    - Many of the employees are top level talent
    - Great facilities

    Cons

    - Impossible to comprehend review process (PMP) that pretty much means you are always going to under-perform
    - No well defined career progression
    - Sometimes their is meeting overload (I suppose all large companies are like this)
    - Too much lower level management

    Advice to Management

    Show employees a clear career path and reward high performers

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance (Flex-40 schedule)
    Ok, benefits
    The ability to learn from seasoned professionals (if you ask the right questions)
    Good projects to work on, just need to be executed by the right team

    Cons

    Managers who will lie to your face to keep you productive
    Managers who can be insulting to a seasoned professional while not having the appropriate knowledge about what the professional is working on.
    Less-experienced individuals are praised for small efforts, while experienced professionals are constantly overlooked and slow to promote.
    Lots of turnover in the organization

    Advice to Management

    Employ upper level managers who know what they are doing
    Do not create continuous layers of middle to lower management, too much overlap and crazy directions from wannabe managers at the bottom.
