No opinion of CEO

Pros

The best reason is the highly matrixed environment consisting of cutting edge professionals from diverse disciplines.

Cons

A couple of members of the executive manangement are technically incompetant (not all), but they were fortunate enough to have followed the CEO from all the companies he previously managed. Pure nepotism.

Advice to Management

Jim Hussey should promote upper management on the basis of technical and managerial capabilities, not on how long he has known them nor in how many of his other companies that they worked together. Competance should come first. Too bad, because I liked Jim and I think he is a very capable leader if he focuses on his employees skills, capabilities and results.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You will never get fired no matter how incompetent you are, which is a great way to retain the worst employees. If you are a yes man who does not mind to see millions of dollars wasted on silly projects, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    You will never get fired no matter how incompetent you are, which is a great way to retain the worst employees. If you are a yes man who does not mind to see millions of dollars wasted on silly projects, this is the place for you. Yes it is a repeat of the previous.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a team that isnt afraid to tell you that you are wrong. Trust the technical people and stop claiming to be an entrepeneur, you are not.
