    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Big on ethics, communications, professionalism. Large company can bring the economies of scale to bear on medical insurerers. They are large enough to have found out long ago that there must be established company policies. Too many companies just float by many issues taking them as they come up and hoping they only come up rarely. Not a good way to run a company.

    Cons

    A little too "professional". Very "tight" environment. No one seems to have a sense of humor! Leo may be Thermo's pick for CEO, but it should've stayed in the hands of an original USCS (US Counseling) senior manager. What? They weren't qualified or have the right credentials? Come on!!

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up! Make it more enjoyable to come to work. Tell employees what possibilities they have to work up the line and what they need to do and accomplish (and time-wise too) to be promoted and move up.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It's a job in a tight economy. Some sites, employees are able to work from home.

    Cons

    Multiple reorganizations. Forever "reinventing the wheel". Communications and cooperation between business units poor. Very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Institute a pension plan and retirement benefits. Yes, some companies still have them, believe it or not!
