    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Company builds some very exciting products and is showing more openness to hear the market's feedback. Potential with new organizational structureand CEO to realize some of the great potential.

    Cons

    50/50 chance of landing in an organization that will function well. If you land in one that does not the politics, unethical behaviors and agendas driven by personal interests of the management can completely destroy your career. Your manager controls 90% of your success of your career, if they don't like you, are not effective in their organization regardless of your contributions you will not be recognized. As a result many people promoted are not the most qualified or the "leaders" you would hope to see running the company.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership - consider replacing at least 40% of the management level of Director and above. If they have seen rapid upward movement without having actually had to own the results of their decisions (role rotation in less than 3 years) if the feedback from their organizations do not show a balance of diversity in the promotion and upper levels that mirrors the lower levels, both are good indicators they have succeeded by working within the "Boys Club". Not the type of ethical, moral and open thought leadership needed to land the challenges needed in a dynamic environment.
