Often when a large organization goes down the CEO is actually one of the people they may be on the chopping block unless the board of directors sees it fit to make widespread cutbacks, layoffs, restructuring etc.
True. In the Organization I work for, our CEO is responsible to the board but also is trusted to run the camp the way he sees fit as long as he stays with in the Boards parameters.

I still don't think a CEO to Employee parallels is Accurate to our government. If anything, as Ostelersomething said, it's more CEO to board (Or share holder) as a good parallel. In this instance though, that puts the responsibility on the board (the Citizens) to make the proper choice for the CEO. I've witnessed what happens to a Organization that has a board that doesn't know what they are doing. You can hire any amount of CEO's but it wont' help if the board is still making poor choices.
