    Current Employee - Branch Manager in Portland, OR
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Fiscal strength, market strength and recognition. Strong company. Has the potential to take over the country, with the foundations that have been built.

    Cons

    Large corporation, where most employees are numbers (gogs in the machine). Showing some disregard for that foundation - forgetting the little people / the front line troops (just numbers on spreadsheets). When the going gets tough, we need to strengthen our force and beat down the competition. Owners just want to show cash flow, so that when they can show a lentgh of time of nice books they can take public or sell private, in whole or in parts.

    Advice to Management

    Think towards the future, in terms of taking care of the people that helped you get where you are - and can help you continue in that success.
