Mike has a tendency to work to the point where he will burn himself out, which is not good for Mike or the company. The guy is as dedicated a team member/partner you could ever ask for, so my only constructive criticism for Mike is to take more downtime to recharge where you completely disconnect...it's critical for your health and the business. When you come back you'll be supercharged and kill-it like I've seen you do time and time again. Mike Zammuto is an unbelievably smart leader that gets work done at the speed of light. He's eloquent, trusthworthy, respectful, and kind. Candidly, this is one of my favorite guys in the world and I am very honored to have had the opportunity to work with him in business.

Mike is pretty intense and he makes some people feel insecure. He is a genuinely nice guy who really cares about the company and people but he is big and a little loud. Its funny that even though the words may be totally supportive and constructive the intensity can still be tough for some people. He is very data driven but if he decides you are a slacker that is it. His company meetings were among the most inspiring I ever went to and some good people got recognition they never had before. But I think we could have done with a few less of these. He is super smart and gets a little visibly impatient with people who drone on. Even when his feedback is good you still wonder if you are going to make it. He wants to change too much too fast for some people and it made them afraid. He is very good at finding the dead wood and getting rid of them but it isnt an easy going culture any more. Most of the top people like me really liked the change. My recommendation is also not to bother trying to suck up to him on a personal basis. It will only backfire. He is (mostly) all business for better or worse I worked for Mike and he came in as CEO like a hurricane. He is very smart and really made our business hum. We were unprofitable before hand and had been for years. The founder is a nice guy but people were concerned about the company's future. Mike changed everything almost overnight. We became really data focused and goal oriented. A lot of people didn't like the changes. He works VERY fast and expects the same from everyone. Going from costing in an easy-going business to sprinting can be exhausting for many people. He did what he was brought in to do and we had our fastest growth and became profitable while he was here. He changed the way every part of the business worked, usually for the best.
