At the very least, I'd get advanced warning, and I have good feel for how the company is doing as opposed to being chopped without warning on the basis of what might happen years down the road.
I thought I had a good feel at my last job, until I found out the officers were purposely massaging the numbers to make things look better than they were. "We didn't quite hit budget, but it's not so bad because our EBITDA is still decent..." Which turned out to actually mean, "We are seriously bleeding cash and it's only by screwing with the ledgers that we can make this look half-decent!"

I don't actually see the numbers here, we just get a memo every quarter that says if we're losing money or not.
