No opinion of CEO

Pros

-Initiative is rewarded and encouraged
-Definitely no feeling of excess in the company - they run a very lean operation
-Good balance of managers and senior non-managers
-Great place to learn how to cut costs

Cons

-treatment of and reliance upon contractors is appalling
-VIP/non-VIP class division is disturbingly overt
-If you would not fit into a desired mold as an employee, there is no hope of being hired permanently
-corporate culture is very closed

Advice to Management

Hire some of your contractors, or at least pay them better. There will come a point at which cutting staff to the bone and maintaining a frozen corporate mentality will diminish morale and scare away talent.
