Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You learn how to get a tough skin

Cons

Management consistently puts you down. Lots of backhanded compliments. They discourage taking time off. You will work 12+ hour days and are "encouraged" to work on the weekends. Advancements are based on based on skill level but how much you have in common with the management. ie... golfing

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect.
