    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    good benefit package. easy to get promoted if you kiss asses and follow orders blindly. constant reorg and have people who have no business sense on the top.

    Advice to Management

    streamline and cut more teams and headcounts will significantly reduce politics in the company. encourage innovation instead of stifling it.
