Worst CEOs you’ve ever worked with... I’ll go first, new CEO wanted us to drive his whole meeting with investors. He asked me for talking points so he could keep tabs on our team’s progress on key messages to investors 😂😂😂 I’m like dude, literally this is your ONE job, why would you outsource it to your advisors?

Has anyone else dealt with this situation? My company has no CLO or GC. However, my company runs all in house legal opinions through its CCO, a non attorney. The CCO and I have had disagreements on points of law on several occasions, but regulatory actions have backed up my opinions. Regardless, the company values the layman's point of view more than mine. I do not feel appreciated by this company in my current role.

Are there any other neurodivergent women in this group? I'd love any advice or insights you may have about disclosing my disability status to a large employer. I've always worked at small companies and am making the jump to a massive company this week. I'm mainly wondering if there will be big differences in the disclosure process or reactions to the disclosure between a small and large company.
