Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- free satellite radio service for employees
- fairly flat organization, so I had ready access to senior leadership
- narrow job scopes make it much easier to focus on tasks & over-deliver

Cons

- decision-making process is overly finance-centric (when the CFO tells you what the marketing research budget will be, you know you've got a problem)
- very little latitude to "own" anything...most day to day decisions, surprisingly, get made at the C-level
- senior leadership wasn't always the smartest folks in the room

Advice to Management

Really start recognizing your employees' talent, hard work and experience. Make a commitment to measure and improve your employee engagement...many good people are disillusioned by the lack of meaningful recognition. A real effort goes beyond traditional (political) awards and into programs that leverage their experience to make things better; drive operational improvement and excellence in execution. Has to be more than a line in an email stating "employees are our most valuable resource." The place is all about pushing decisions down the organization...no feedback loop...probably by design.
