Approves of CEO

Pros

High pay, flexible hours, you can working from home and work short hours. Nice gym, nice facilities, overall nice working environment.

Cons

A lot of politics, promotion is extremely hard because my manager had been working at his position for 9 years without a promotion.

Advice to Management

More transparency is needed and more motivation needed for employees. Should provide more full time opportunities for contractors and part time employees.
