    Default suggested to the group that...

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-I suggested to the company that John should do the job.
    2-I suggested to the company that John should be given the job.


    They seem OK to me. I don't know why I am having doubts about them. Perhaps because "John" is neither the subject of "suggested" nor its indirect object (which is "the company").

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
