CEO of Mesa Air - shows that bad CEOs can be lauded in the press

Jonathan Ornstein, CEO of Mesa Air, was recently the subject of an article in the New York Times. It said that he is in a bad mood around 60% of the time - and he does not hesitate to take it out on his subordinates! So what kind of person would work for him - probably people who lack self-respect.

“He’s loud, volatile, insulting, doesn’t listen to the other perspective.” -- Scott Kirby, President, US Airways.

Do we need CEOs like that?
