    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - big company with lots of perks
    - mostly nice and friendly coworkers
    - decent salaries

    Cons

    - too many managers there doing nothing but play the politics game to protect their jobs
    - really lacking leadership right now and that starts right at the to with the CEO

    Advice to Management

    Advice to board of directors: time to get a CEO who knows how to innovate and expand the company's product line and monetize the massive amount of traffic they get! There is still some hope but definitely not going to make it with the current CEO.
