Disapproves of CEO

Pros

It is close to my home and my daughters can stay in the same schools. The pay rate is reasonable even though the benefits are poor.

Cons

People trying to build little empires - Some managers that think they know everything about everything - Lack of respect for employees - Too many people that are going through the motions

Advice to Management

Try to do something for a reason other than it will line your pockets. The board siphons off so much cash with their constant stock options it borders on blatant greed.

    Pros

    Day to day work was challenging, with new projects and business areas providing ample opportunities for significant contributions and recognition. Management supportive of work/life balance.

    Cons

    Benefits (retirement, health care) were slashed as the company struggled a number of years ago, in spite of management promises to maintain these for established employees and retirees.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is not just decision-making. It is also about your employees knowing that they will be treated at least as well as investors. Respect. Honesty. Commitment.
