Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Good associates that care about each other, the work and the customers. Good place to gain contemporary marketing related technology skills.

Cons

Executive management allows misalignment and in-fighting between groups. Extremely poor financial reporting and financial management capabilities. Too much focus on profit over associate and customer satisfaction. Executive management makes decisions in their own self interest.

Advice to Management

Stop treating employees and customers so poorly. They are both the reason you exist even though you think it is all about you. Fix all of the misalignment between LOBs, markets and especially the GSO. Act more professional and respectful toward people.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    1) Good start - you can get a grip how it is to work in global organization
    2) Great people to work with!
    3) You won't get exposure to the newest ideas and technologies but it's always something

    Cons

    1) Very bad or no organization
    2) Redundancy of: management, reporting, etc.

    Sometimes I had impression that management is just doing random decisions.

    Advice to Management

    1) Better organize
    2) Connect between different lines of business
    3) Try to incorporate newest technologies by hiring new, active people. Currently there are just old guys left which like things like they were few years ago.

    Pros

    Reasonable PTO policies
    -Free covered parking
    -Decent free workout room
    -Small-city setting
    -Probably best suited for a recent grad, and not a mid-career transition
    -Had one good mid-level manager

    Cons

    Mixed messages about workplace flexibility (do as I say...), rampant cronyism--unsolved by the post-morgan regime, hidden layoffs. Pay below market, with few raises. Worked hard--on products, services, enhancements, etc. that were discarded.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the programs meant to disguise how bad or good things are going. Give a process a chance before ditching it. Kill the abuses of the good ol' boy system. Find a balance between real revenue generation (operating revenue aka cost cutting doesn't count!) and infrastructure building.
