I agree with previous comments, the CEO is systematically destroying a one time good company. He is moving people he has known in the past, from other companies, into management positions.
These people have minimal management experience and walk around like they are untouchable. Current good, hard working employees have nowhere to go when they are targeted to be fired, making way for other people who are in favour with the CEO.
The new management position is "if you don't like it here, there's the door". Imagine being told this after giving over 20 years of dedicated service because you have a difference of opinion or want to make some constructive input.
They are a perfect example of how NOT to run a company and how to not to treat employees.
To compound the issues, the CEO is apparently placing like minded people, who are dedicated to him, onto the CAA Board, so if someone is treated inappropriately they have absolutely nowhere to go to rectify a workplace issue. As it stands now, an employee can be bullied and must do absolutely everything a manager tells them to do or be fired for no reason.
steady employment, if in favour with CEO
a poisonous workplace atmosphere
