    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Promotes time off, family-ness, understands that you have a life -- if you're not an engineer. Rarely fires people for not contributing to anything in his/her line of work. In another word, you can easily slack off.

    Cons

    Used ot be a good company, but new management screwed it up with foul decisions and complete lack of understanding in the marketplace economy. I'm sure the management team have never done any business before.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management - you have obviously never done any serious business before. You don't know how it's like to run a small business, so please get some experience before you foul it up anymore.

    Pros

    Employees are some of the most talented and intelligent I have met. Culturally diversity is amazing.

    Cons

    Constantly shifting direction of company initiatives and lack of transparency from leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Find your direction. Create a home in the space you choose to play by letting your talented team (your employees) build a solid foundation. Find the roots of a commonly shared goal from the ground up.
