    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -location, nice to drive to the beach for lunch
    -good discounts on products
    -good people to work with

    Cons

    -unclear management goals (top-down communication is poor)
    -ever changing priorities
    -confusing bonus structure
    -mistrust among employees toward management

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with the entire organization would be helpful. Product road maps and sharing of launch schedule would help everyone do their job better and feel as if they have a personal stake in what they are doing. A clearer bonus structure would help with the mistrust created between employees and managers. Taking the bonuses away would be better that what seems like this double talk we get.
