Approves of CEO

Pros

Very fast growing company. Great opportunities at this moment for personal and career advancements. Collaborative work culture. High pedigree CEO and low profile who is well respected both internally as well as externally.

Cons

Management inconsistencies between different departments. Fast growth comes with challenges. Corporate HQ is a bit dated and very crowed (that does have its benefits as well). Company could benefit from better planning.

    Pros

    They would bring in food quite frequently

    Lots of talented people around to learn from

    Product was descent but not great

    Cons

    The politics within this company are absolutely ridiculous. Friends of managers were promoted and praised. Regular guys were worked to death and never given an inch. Also, nepotism is rampant, there are several nephews\brothers etc...working for the company. These people are also given preferential treatment.

    Management has no desire to praise, encourage or otherwise reward anyone.

    This company is bent on selling the company and whoa be to you if you are standing in the way. People are routinely thrown under the bus, even executives. I saw 40% of the staff fired or laid off during my two years there, even though revenues were steadily rising.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't know where to begin. Start hiring managers who know what they are doing.

    Pros

    - fun, energetic people
    - really great product
    - lots of cross-functional communication

    Cons

    - always felt like the company was up for sale
    - leadership seemed self-absorbed, willing to "throw folks under the bus"
    - upper management didn't seem to have much regard for the working managers

    Advice to Management

    I hear they got rid of John, but still not much better. Remember that your people are greatest resource, and treat them with the respect they deserve.
