    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Some very interesting, talented, and creative people
    - Casual and friendly atmosphere amongst employees
    - Decent pay
    - Beer cart Fridays
    - Convenient location

    Cons

    - Poor communication from senior management
    - Little to no recognition for jobs well done, but plenty of criticism over the smallest mistakes
    - Heavy workloads that are unattainable in a "regular" 40-hour work week, so work-life balance is non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Senior management really needs to start paying attention to the "little people" on the floor. We're the ones who are helping you make your revenue, so it'd be nice if we had more of an idea what was actually going on with this company. Also, you should really make a better attempt to hide your disorganization - for instance, telling us we're getting raises and following it up with an "oops, we made a mistake, no you aren't" is NOT a good way to keep employees.
