    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, autonomy, reasonable hours

    Cons

    Constantly changing comp structure, no control over drivers of incentive comp, poor communication from senior management, confusing strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Have the guts to reprimand people who are abusing company policies, vs. penalizing everyone with draconian policy changes. Pick a comp structure and stick with it.

    Pros

    Good family friendly environment
    Immediate management was solid.
    Solid pay when working on projects no one wanted to touch.

    Cons

    Upper management out of touch with the reality of the work place.
    Double standard when doing good work. They will not advance you because you can not be replaced, yet will look to fire you because you have never advanced.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management get a clue and help your managers get the support they need to help people advance their careers. Stop hiring consultants to figure out how to out source jobs when the cost of lost buisness sky rockets when said positions are moved overseas. Look at the long term goals more than the immediate money saving. It always ends up costing more in the end.
