No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great VP for IT. There are [only] a couple of bright spots in management.

Cons

Too much complacency and acceptance of status-quo. Promotions are equal regardless of performance and achievement. H/R works hard to low-ball promotion rate. IT is often the obstacle for other divisions. IT likes to limit choices with convoluted policies driven by leaders that have little care for customer service. Leaders are driven by an overly conservative approach that only benefits the leaders and not the company.

Advice to Management

It's all about the customer. Please work to enable rather than hinder the company's progress. Go out of the way to provide solutions instead of being paralyzed with indecision. Limit the effect of your micro-managers so that innovation and high-performers can flourish.
