President Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a President?

President in Palm Springs:
"Great managing a company and people."
Pros: I enjoy being a leader.
Cons: Reprimanding employees.

President in Detroit:
"The daily responsibilities allowed me to grow into th role o."
Pay attention to what people say and treat them with the utmost respect.

President in Seattle:
"Experience."
Be willing to work on the "shop floor" to learn the business that will carry a deeper understanding of the change in actions as you progress with promotions.

President in Ann Arbor:
"Diversify Your Experience."
Listen more than talk. Ask questions. Get involved in the details of the business.

President in Dickson:
"Is It Worth The Price?"
There are many factors in this job and many sacrifices such as time, money and stress. You must be passionate to hold this job or you will easily be disenchanted. The satisfaction and rewards come with a steep price.

President in New York:
"Find A Company."
Leading an organization is always stressful. But if they are your problems and if you have the ultimate responsibility for solving them, then they are always more manageable. If you work for someone else - even at a President level, you often find yourself held accountable for failure when someone else overrides your decision. That's a sure way to an unhappy life. Find your own company. Risky, but perhaps less so in some ways - if you trust your own judgement. And if you don't, you shouldn't be President anyway!

President in Fall River:
"Very small family business; infighting; no room for growth."
Pros: Product is fun; good comraderie with industry peers.
Cons: Trying to please family Shareholders who have no appreciation for what I go through.
