Working Condisions

  • Advantages -Being the chief operating officer, or CEO, of a company represents the pinnacle of success for many career professionals. This top-ranked leadership position is typically achieved after years of experience and ascension through the ranks of a particular business or industry.
  • Disadvantages-increased responsibility. Although you have greater power, you are also going to have to have bigger responsibilities within your organization. In many cases, this means that you are going to have to put in longer hours than many other employees. You will have to govern over the company and handle any problems that arise (as a sidenote, you should mention your problem solving skills in your executive ceo resume). If something goes wrong in the company, you are ultimately the one that is responsible for this problem even if you did not cause it.
