    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Less stress for average sklled person. Benefits are good for the region and industry. Good place for beginners to build job skills.

    Cons

    Growth opportunity is only based on communication skills and political savvy people. Technically skilled people in IT are not reviewed based on performance. Even if you save tons of money on projects, there is no payback to the contributor. There are plenty of managers ready to take credit for the work.

    Advice to Management

    Announce the names of key contributors and what they did. Get the roadmap straight by allowing apple to apple comparison for all.

    asked to do more with less (less support personnel, less tools to work with), too many projects and not enough internal support to see them fully develop

    Advice to Management

    need to look very closely at the talent pool that you are letting go do to restructuring as well as those you think are going to remain for the long haul and make sure you do a thorough job in quarterly / annual reviews
