Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Housecleaning, nice people, fun parties.

Cons

Seems like it's all a rouse. They tell you things in the interview, and make promises they have no intention of keeping. When reminded of what was promised, you get a lot of push back. CEO has stepped down and a new CEO in place who doesn't share the same vision and a lot of the people, including me, who've been here many years feel that all that made it a great company, is now gone.

Advice to Management

Get back to the core that made the company great in the first place. Get rid of new CEO and reinstate the old one.
