    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good work/life balance & time off when you want/need it if you are rank and file employee. Most employees really are good, hardworking people.

    Cons

    Most management, if they do a good job, are worked like borrowed mules and if they don't do a good job...well, that's okay too. There is no supervisor/manager accountability.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to promote someone to a supervisory or management level, make sure they supervise or manage their employees.
