    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Job security - financially sound company with long and solid history

    Cons

    Senior Leadership is not in tune with the businesses it now owns. Short term decision making - business managed very short term. Far too much emphasis on centralization. Policies for policies sake, with no common sense or discussion to back them up. HR too powerful and misguided

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the HR group, focus them on supporting the businesses not dictating to them.
    Take a longer term view.
    Recognize A players before they leave and manage C players out of the business
