- Process is broken. It often is an obstacle rather than helpful. Too much time is spent on managing inadequate software, and not enough time solving major problems.
- Communication is problematic. Leadership micro-manages. There is a culture of secrecy and punishment so employees are scared to communicate problems when they arise as a result. Some key employees don't even read e-mail due to the high volume created by the communication system in place.
- PM's are used as scapegoats, but are relatively powerless to enact change.
