Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You get paid and they provide benefits. Not as good as many other large companies but it's ok.

Cons

When you work for an organization that is in trouble people act strangly. When projects continue to be cut and no new ones are added, colleagues snap at each other and hide information.
It's common there for people to believe that if they make someone else look bad they look good. It can be a very sad place to work, with the despiration that people may be losing their jobs.

Advice to Management

Management continued to threaten people that they would lose their jobs if...
I think it may be that the manager felt threatened by his managment so he projected his this threat on those that reported to him, but it made the work environment unpleasent.
