No opinion of CEO

Pros

Entertainment industry, the people you meet, highly competant employees.

Senior management and their egos. How did some of these people get to where they are at anyway? Senior management has lost control of what's really going on with the people who actually do the real work.

Advice to Management

Learn to respect the people that support you.
