Approves of CEO

Pros

Great benefits, salary, and career opportunities
Surrounded by top talent
Looks great on a Resume

Cons

Work/Home life balance is difficult
Change comes too fast, too often, and it does not have a common sense approach. Change comes in silos and is usually done for window dressing rather than attacking root causes to barriers.
Knowledge comes at a premium and is hoarded; not shared.
