    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits
    Unlimited vacation if you can get your manger's approval
    Work can be extremely interesting, challenging and fun

    Cons

    Senior management is incompetent and elitist, no MBWA
    Many coworkers are incompetent
    English is a second language
    Corporate infrastructure is nonexistent or incompetent
    It is in a cyclical, boom and bust sector

    Advice to Management

    Resign and have real executives apply to the board. The company is broken and can only be fixed with people who have a vision for a better more successful company.
