To have a range of successful companies in different sectors which still have a manageable size; I hate companies where employees are able to create work for each other (e.g. via meetings and reports) without producing output for the company. Efficiency and ongoing challenge are key.
Success is to create happy customers, meaningful jobs, and a pleasant working environment where people love to work hard for our team.
