Advice to Management

If there was ever a dysfunctional, bizzaro management team, this is it. And not in a cool, creative way.
Just because you have a monkey on speed, doesn't mean that the monkey is smart. And it certainly doesnt mean said monkey is a good manager. Your chairman just wrote a brilliant book, read it.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Egos and politics are at a minimum.

    Cons

    They seem to only care about their image in terms of the level of "innovation" in the work.

    You're expected at the office by 9:30 AM regardless of the fact that you left at 3:00 AM the night before. If you stand up for yourself by valuing work life balance you're looked at as "not being a team player."

    Advice to Management

    Realize that there is more to life than winning awards.
