Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Southern Company full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good benefits, good job security, great people to work with

Cons

pitiful management i.e. only knowledgable on pushing employees past the limit, very overwhelming expectations, very unnecessary style of management

Advice to Management

not much hope so not really worth mentioning but to suggest a minima, create an enjoyable atmosphere for employees to work in by treating them like people. Be firm but mix in previous leadership style so company can get back to begin the best in the business.
