    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Possibly a good exposure to digital media industry and evolutions as content is created and disseminated. Could be a good training ground for someone interested in learning about the online world.

    Cons

    Better find a good manager - there is serious paucity of this breed. Most good leaders I knew of are no longer there and the young bunch (disguising as leaders) - well you can read about them on the blogs. Anyway, if only to train, rotation among departments would be good for training, provided the organization still encourages it.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is about gaining the trust of employees, so they can help you achieve the strategic vision and goals. Get rid of the "pretend" contributors, especially at the senior management level - one of the easier ways to motivate people.
