Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Each episode, which is imported from the British and Australian versions of the Undercover Boss franchise, offers a voyeuristic opportunity to watch CEOs discover some of the flaws in their corporate policies while learning about some of the day-to-day struggles their employees face to keep things running in a struggling economy. But much of the show is committed to highlighting the stories of specific workers, whose hard work for the company has gone mostly unrecognized.

One can't help but suspect that the CEO is purposely introduced to people and/or situations to create an entertaining show. You also can't help but wonder how inspired some of the executives remain after the cameras are turned off. Nonetheless, it succeeds in highlighting the importance of bridging the gap between executives and the people who make the companies run at the most basic level.
