Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The company is profitable but off the backs of its employees. It has remained competitive but through cut throat management tactics. Shareholders love to invest in this type of company.

Cons

This is one of those companies where the employees are slave driven like pack mules and expected to put in massive overtime. The shareholders are more important than the employees, and financial savings (through outsourcing eg) is preferred over product quality. The lack of project communication is unnerving, and there is no five year plan, only reactive decisions to customer whims.

Advice to Management

Stop treating employees like barcoded commodities. Hire managers who can inspire employees, not just track their time and effort. Encourage work-life balance.
