President and CEO Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a President and CEO?

President and CEO in Melbourne:
"Time Consuming."
Pros: Working for a start up is challenging, but allows for intensive learning on a broad spectrum of topics necessary for success in the business world. Being president means you have control of the strategic direction of the company and who else you work with, which is extremely appealing.
Cons: Being a small start up means that there is much less delegation of tasks and much of the menial work falls into myself. Often times this work is not intellectually stimulating and I would prefer to be focusing on other aspects of the business.
