No opinion of CEO

Pros

even for senior scientists it's pretty much a regular 8-5 work day, good pay; workers are nice to work with

Cons

a leadership vacuum in the research area; instead of having a small percentage of bad managers, the vast majority of managers/directors are bad, ranging from control freaks to bullies; managers don't greet or even acknowledge people in the hall ways; the morale is very low, everybody is unhappy

Advice to Management

don't think current management in research has a chance to turn it around; distrust and dislike to too deeply ingrained in workers

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    competitive benefit and compensation package

    Cons

    Again all emphasis is put on numbers with less regard to business judgement. Manager's primary concern is to be the top of the "list" regardless of what market dictates.

    Advice to Management

    There is a great improvement in communication, but listening is the key.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Self -direction, working independently, opportunity to make excellent salary, benefits are excellent, thanks to ownership of insurance company - of couse, one arm of the company sortof creats the clientele for the other. Wonderful perks like minimum 5 weeks vacation, great retirement, company vehicle, and you can set your own schedule. If you get a good
    group of people to work with - this job is wonderful.

    Cons

    Ladder-climbing junior management create situations and trim staff to suit their ambitions - costing the company some of its best and brightest. Also - never tell your kids what you do for a living, since they will be hounded at school
    by the anti-smokers. Get use to people asking you for freebie cartons. And you mightas well take up smoking yourself, since most staff meetings are in smoke-fileld rooms.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your staff more -trust their judgment - they are the noes in the trenches in what is a very unpopular occupation
