    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There are pockets of extremely intelligent people and pockets of very good people (some are even both). The professional experience that could be gained here is truly rare.

    Cons

    Middle management is inefficient, ineffective, and incompetent. The company is spirally down the drain and there have been many layoffs as of late. Company morale is at an all time low. Bad leadership has put many contracts in jeopardy.

    Advice to Management

    Reign in middle management. There should be more accountability for their mistakes. There also needs to be less middle management or more checks on them.
