No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good technology, decent co-workers, Salary is ok but could be better

Cons

Toxic work environment, 3 Chief Technology Officers hired in last 5 years, no work life balance, no appreciation from management, good people are leaving or are removed because of highly political environment, no raise or bonus given to managers and below in 2009 but Directors and above received bonuses, there is no trust, Managers/Directors asked not to say complete truth in Leadership meeting, senior management offer more money to people when they leave,.....too many VPs

Advice to Management

It is time to start "inspecting" what your direct reports tells you......don't blindly trust them and make or support their decisions.......... have conversation with real people below who is doing all the work. Offer more money to employees (not many left anyway now) who have been with company for many years instead of offering more money to new people who are leaving, Hire actual people to do the wok instead of VPs

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Benefits are okay...better than others. At one point management enjoyed making the department a more fun and lively place.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Attempts to weasel out of paying employees what they're entitled. Bad communication practices between management and their lower level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees are productive employees. If you treat your employees like garbage you're going to get minimal effort in getting work done. If so many people are actively looking for employment elsewhere then there's obviously an issue...
