Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Huge company with lots of locations and business units, excellent name recognition, opportunities to learn if you want to take it upon yourself to do so.

Cons

Extremely political and if you are not one of the group or if someone in the group is threatened by you, your skills and abilities or education level, then look out. You will not have the opportunities to advance as you should.

Advice to Management

You go to great lengths to recruit very talented and educated women and then you devalue them and their contributions to the organization...as evidenced by the large numbers of senior level women leaving the company.

    Upper Management theoreticallly likes to change things.

    Whatever is preached by upper level management goes through hi-tech lynching by the power holders.

    Get out the in-breeding for an effective change
