Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Work life balance. Meet interesting diverse people, on the phone :-) People you work with directly are all great..

Cons

IBM invented Bullmerde bingo. High Performance culture rewards top 10% year after year to the detriment of everyone else - who actually do the real work - instead of spending majority of the time telling everyone how wonderful they are... Company takes advantage of their employees with expectation of working extra hours that are not compensated with overtime payments.

Advice to Management

If you make huuuuge record profits be a bit more generous with your employees. Stop threatening all employees with cheap GR resources, all the time.
