    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CGN Global

    Pros

    Very flat organization with accessible management; Opportunity to explore your interests; Project variety; Employees can "chart their own course"

    Cons

    Leadership hears feedback but doesn't listen; Volatile work environment (yelling, screaming); Creativity stifled; Leadership is dishonest and selfish; Business is mismanaged resulting in little job security; Attrition rate is (and always has been) through the roof

    Advice to Management

    Foster your all-stars. Treat them with respect and give them autonomy and support to grow. Treat them well and they will repay you with loyalty. Be reflexive about why all your best talent is leaving the company.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at CGN Global full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Can be brought onto different projects to grow skillset in various areas - New ideas and initiatives are well received within teams - Opportunities to get in front of the client being early

    Cons

    - Reviews can be more consistent and not changed every 2 years - Upper leadership does not delegate new initiatives well and creates a bottleneck for progress in certain areas - Lots of travel

    Advice to Management

    Create a structure where the top leaders are strategic, and allow the lower leads and below to implement needed operational change and ideas without having to get approval for every aspect.
