    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great group of co-workers.
    In a position (as a product) to really succeed within the security industry.
    Great locations to work.
    Casual dress code (for now).
    Rewarding work (even if it's not recognized my management)

    Cons

    Upper management lack of vision and appear to be only interested in lining their own pockets.
    Very top heavy. There are so many managers, directors, and executive staff. I mean do we really need 2 CTO's and now a SVP to manage the CTO's?
    Serious lack of talent within the Dev and QA teams.
    Salaries are grossly unbalanced.
    Promotions are solely based on who you know, who you sleep with, or whether you're a "yes' person or not. It's truly sad!
    Training is non-existent at this place.
    No more dogs.
    Relocating offices.
    Employees have no voice despite upper management swearing they do.
    No open door policy despite upper management saying they are always available.
    I can go on and on....so I'll stop there.

    Advice to Management

    Wake the hell up!! You are sinking this ship.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I have a job
    fair pay
    tolerable working hours
    close to where I live but we are supposed to be moving

    Cons

    supervisors team leads department head vice presidents are all very impressed with themselves they love to have meetings so they can tell each other how great they are
    employees do whatever they have to to keep their jobs but loathe ever minute they are in the office
    management tries to blame everything bad on previous management

    unless customers want to pay for service they are going to get the least amount of help possible

    Advice to Management

    Peter Watkins is NOT the CEO that change happened over a year ago so stop pointing at him
    the new group has been in charge for over a year time to stop blaming him and admit you have no idea what you are doing except destroying what was a good company
