    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It pays the bills and there is a good spirit between employees
    The topics they work on could be very exciting...if they had a different management

    Cons

    No hope for growth for the young generations, no trainings provided, no rewards
    If you are looking for a place to innovate, work somewhere else
    No career future for women in this company

    Advice to Management

    This company has a huge potential but does not know how to use it because it is managed poorly. Most of the top level managers should be taken out. Fresh air is needed in order to innovate! Remove the mafia, people are scared of doing anything. Encourage people to take risks and you will get some great things out of this company. But for this, put the right people at management levels. Hire young people and encourage their development! Give them the opportunities to manage projects and teams instead of giving this chance only to "older" and more experienced employees. Empowerment is key for saving this company.
