Pros

Casual environment, friendly co-workers, professional office space. High profile clients.

Stop answering questions with "That's not my job". Get off your "high-horse" and accept some responsibility.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Everyone, no matter from what department, was very nice and willing to help. I never had a problem with the people I worked with and after I left I had connections from all the departments.

    Cons

    Although everyone was nice, there was never any time to get to really get to know the people you were working with.

    Advice to Management

    Set aside company days where employees can just hang out and get to know each other. It will definitely boost the morale in the office.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Large global capacities with focus on technical expertise.

    Cons

    Management was allowed to have spouses, relatives and close friends as direct reports. This was NOT conducive to a healthy work environment unless, of course you were a relative, spouse or close personal friend. These related employee's were protected at all costs no matter the mistakes that were costing the reputation of the company and profit margins that could have been increased instead of decreased.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely........anonymous polls may help but the problem may stem from the top up. Your company will continue to loose business when un-related employees are forced out.
