    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The people are all A-list and care about at least one of the two aspects of the dual bottom-line mission: profit and energy use reduction. The CEO & President genuinely care about everyone in the company. The stocked breakroom, group lunches, various clubs, and happy hours are a plus.

    Cons

    Over the past two years, the coupany has tripled in number of employees. Perhaps because of this, politics between parts of the company has ranged from confusing to nasty in the past few months. Some middle-managers are more focused about their rank and position when they should be supporting people on their team or focusing on bottom-line results. The result is an environment is one where lower-level employees tend to get things done despite their respective bosses as well as a bit of fear.

    Advice to Management

    Dan and Alex should take a hard look and their second-level direct reports and ask not only if they have the technical skills but the people skills for a growing company.
