Disapproves of CEO

I worked at WCG full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Close to the water. Makes suicide easier

Cons

Management on a weird power trip. If you are willing to say yes to people in leadership who have no expertise in your field you are golden. Try to make any kind of positive change, or innovate you are sunk. Watch your back because eventually you will become a target. It's straight up Children of the Corn - noone makes it to 5 years! They have a strategy to eliminate people and refresh with recruits that havent been jaded and are fresh off the boat.If you want to maintain your sanity stay away!

Advice to Management

Stop drinking your own kool-aid and actually listen to the talent - they know more than you.
