From the article: Lunch with the CEO
A "Lunch With The CEO" program is a smart idea for the company, the CEO and the employees. The program and its benefits are described in the associated article "Lunch With The CEO". If you could ask one question of your CEO (or the CEO of any company) what would you ask? What would you want to know more about?

Some department are treated unfairly

In the banking industry, marketers are exposed to sanctions that their levels in other units are not exposed to. Marketers receive 50% of their monthy pay if their customers credit facility goes bad. This can last for as long as it takes the customer to pay down on the facilty. If this practice is not stopped, marketers will be forced not to package credit facility.
