    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Analysts are very smart and good to work with - care, in spite of politics and metrics. Good work/life flexibility.

    Cons

    Most of those reporting to CEO are not qualified to do their jobs - they rose through the rank by being "one of the boys" (and a girl). Youth-biased culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get some fresh blood for leadership positions.
