    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I get to manage my own time. You have to make yourself take time away from the job, otherwise it will own you. I'm kept very busy, but at least I'm not behind a desk all day.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management bring visions of "Office Space" to mind. Unfortunately, it's not in a funny way. Very easy to get frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Please replace the Leadership Model behavior "Communicate, Communicate, Communicate" with "Communicate - Effectively"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours when things aren't chaotic, pretty good people to work with.

    Cons

    very political and clicky. sometimes very long hours if you have staff meetings, investigations, or derailments to cover.

    Advice to Management

    please give good feedback. It is not fair to not give feedback all year long ad then bash your employee in their evaluation.
