    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Promotes self initiative and outside the box thinking, which often times meant what connections you had to move ahead. Very entrapreneurial.

    Cons

    too narcissistic for many people - Not so much what effort you put in but whether you're in a "sweet spot" regarding product in order to be successful. Upper management too concerned about tee-off times then how to move the business forward with integrity

    Advice to Management

    Bone up on public relations and learn how to manage downward to the people who report to you, not upward to people who don't follow through on providing resources

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The environment was extremely laid-back yet very productive. A great thing is that most managers were completely hands out, which inspired subordinates to follow suit.

    Cons

    There was not a premium put on being creative. In fact, falling in line with the status was seemingly better for your career. The pay was very low compared to similar positions at other financial institutions.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage creativity and risk taking.
