No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good benefits (although they're not what they used to be).
Telecommuting options for some jobs being adopted, at least on a part time basis.
Some groups do work on some sexy products.
Mostly respectful of work/life balance.

Cons

Bloated and redundant org structure.
Aging workforce -- too many of whom are just focused on putting in their time to collect their pensions.
Uninspriring environment -- which leads to an inability to engage employees.
Inability to keep younger employees.
"Two Tiered" Wage Structure -- Lots of graybeards making a ton of dough who frankly don't do much. People now being brought in at much lower salaries to do the same work. Had led to widespread skills vs. pay discrepancies.
Good ol' boys networking
Once they pigeonhole you into a particular Salaried Job Classification (SJC), the company makes it virtually impossible to branch out into other areas.
Meaningless performance review system.
Merit system (salary review) system that won't correct deficiencies if you got lowballed coming in.
"Pay your dues" mentality.
