      Great People, dysfunctional C-suite

      Jan 12, 2021 - Administration in Redwood City, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some of the smartest and nicest people I've worked with from life sciences, software, semiconductor manufacturing, medical devices, and pharma. Low egos among most of the leadership team and employee population.

      Cons

      CEO is tone deaf to feedback about disparities in the organization, or the dysfunction with some of his own direct reports in the C-suite, which exist because of his own leadership style. He's not evil, but does approach every meeting as though he's the smartest guy in the room, and shuts down productive discussions by merely walking in.

      Pros

      - Cool product - Fun and friendly coworkers some of whom are also very intelligent and knowledgeable - Good work life balance

      Cons

      1. Management lacks vision Many senior managers and some junior managers don't understand the technological depth beyond the big picture and as a result don't know how to mobilize resources towards a collective vision. Worse yet, I'm not sure they have a vision! Company objectives change every season and projects are left incomplete. If a half-baked idea made its way to corporate goals, then the project gets done only to be undone and redone again and again and again! 2. Inability to manage company finances CFO and finance team has seen much turnover. Money is spent lavishly to appear on par with silicon valley software startups: Extravagant holiday parties, fully stocked snack bar and fancy company wide planning meetings hosted at hotels. This may seem great but not when hardworking employees are getting laid off because management forgot to raise money before they decided to spend beyond their means. 3. Too many managers and few individual contributors One thing that has constantly grown is the ratio of managers to individual contributors. They keep getting promoted from manager to Director to VP. And in order to justify the inflated titles, they also keep hiring more junior managers and adding layers. Some teams have 3 managers to 1 individual contributor. Too many "stakeholders" need to be pleased and nothing ends up getting done because too many voices need to make sure they have the last word.
