Approves of CEO

Pros

Work Life Balance. Get Most Benefits. Competitive starting salaries if you graduated from a good school (fresh grads). Friendly low stress environment. Excellent products well recognized and respected in market. Financial Firm, so experience you get is so useful if you want to move to some bigger firm when you feel it is the time. Most interns get hired even in bad economic times. So lucky you if you are an intern and your manager was satisfied with your performance.

Cons

Tough to increase your salary in a bad economy and job security becomes questionable if your performance isn't wow..

Advice to Management

Cutting costs and decreasing head count is not the only answer in difficult times. Losing the good people to competitors has a big price. There should be some good ways to increase revenues and market share in a faster pace even when the economy slows down.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Large company with a small company feel. Company has tremendous growth potential given the recent collapse of some very large competitors. No capital at risk, so little chance of a blow up.

    Cons

    Some projects take a long time to get implemented or do not meet the client specs when they finally are. Technology good but not leading edge.

    Advice to Management

    Make it clear to the employees what they are expected to do to grow the business and how they get paid if they succeed.
