    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you like being a second class citizen. Believe that no good ideas come from the US, and you're just hanging on to your career by a thread, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Spent too much time chasing shadows to put to rest the latest fears of senior management. Saw some great ideas go nowhere because they literally believe the saying...if it ain't dutch it ain't much...

    Advice to Management

    Get some self respect and move on to somewhere else where you'll be respected for your contribution.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Always something to do, hardly ever bored.

    Cons

    Upper management seems reluctant to give stores support to perform essential store functions.
    Pointless and frequent conference calls disrupt store functions.
    Training programs inadequate.
    Outside sales reps do not facilitate good working relationships with store staff.
    You will be short staffed and constantly criticized by upper management because you cannot get the simplest things done.
    Seems that upper management stack the deck against you...setting you up to fail customer expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the stores when they tell you they need help. There are decent, hard working people that whose motivation has dwindled due to poor treatment.
