Disapproves of CEO

Pros

the pay is ok, but you are treated like crap. there is favoritism no matter what.

Cons

favoritism.
leadership is not positive.
reviews are not done properly
you get told youre going to get written up for behavioral issues for using personal time in the morning, rather than in the evening.
they dont actually know how hard you bust your ass, and their computers dont calculate rates correctly.
you get treated like a child, and that you are their pet.
they threaten you with your job in different situations

Advice to Management

become more employee eccentric as well. talk to employees like they are on the same level as you and get off your high horse.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work with smart, driven people, get paid extremely well, and for company growing at an amazing rate.

    Cons

    Cash-bonus (at hire) and stock grants all are structured to keep you here through thick and thin.

    Take risks/chances on stretch-assignments at your own risk -- your manager will not be there to support you when you come up short, even if he/she has bought into all your progress steps. All part of the shoot-the-messenger culture. HR is without a spinal, echoing whatever ego-driven conclusions your management group has.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some mediocre employees to do the daily boring work. Giving smart, talented and bright people unchallenging work just creates an environment of exaggerated task difficulties, and competitiveness of who's logging more hours.
