    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Open communication with different levels of management. Working with hard working, smart, and talented people who push you to succeed.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for career advancement in my field - often felt stuck doing what I was doing. Side projects were slim to none.

    Pros

    No vacation policy and flexbility. High pay, which is meant to replace some of the perks that other companies offer. Interesting and fun industry. Employees are smart and work as a team for the greater good.

    Cons

    The "freedom and responsiblity" culture works for some, as long as you do not disagree with management. There is very high turnover. When people are let go, they are surprised. People are afraid to make mistakes, which makes for a stressful enviroment. I have never felt comfortable working there. Management is out of touch with its customers and makes hasty decisions that contradict common sense. Employees suffer because of this. Why would the former CFO leave when the stock on its way to its peak?

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are valuable resources. Treat them as such.
