Approves of CEO

Pros

I reported to excellent managers. Great plans at the top that don't seem to filter down- truly a loss.

Cons

No farm league. Future quite uncertain due to a miserable business climate. Way too much unnecessary travel in light of how difficult business is, the expense and lost time doing it.

Advice to Management

Stop letting go of great, dedicated talent. Retrain, reposition, motivate people who truly want to be a part of "Big Red".

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Team effort. Evolving company that made hard choices before most recent economic downturn. Management an staff saed the compny from ruin. It was in the red, it is now in the black.

    Cons

    In the effort to save the company, thousands of workers lost their jobs. Many were near retirement age. The community culture that existed was lost when so many people were laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Management: cut the executive level expenses, rebuild he customer base, expand and rehire.
    Avoid the race to the bottom mentality of never trying togrow the business.
