    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great people, challenging work, a lot of flexibility in hours/vacation time, etc. Lots of internal positions to apply to in order to expand your knowledge base.

    Cons

    Strong 'who you know' network that can hinder promotions. Higher ratings are determined by how much exposure you have had to senior leadership throughout the year. The more visible you are the higher you are rated. Strong cultural discrepancy between Baby Boomers and younger workforce. Healthcare plan has gone down the toilet. Pension plan not available for younger employees = no incentive to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Implement 360 review for managers. Get rid of low scoring managers.
