    - benefits, 401k - good people - work life balance


    - capital sharing structure should create synergy between business units, but instead promotes billable hours mentality and unproductive/expensive competition practices - change moves at a snail pace - management clogs the pipes with over zealous processes - management answers up but fails to listen down

    Advice to Management

    Give technical power back to the people you pay to make technical decisions. Hire the necessary resources to implement and encourage positive change rather nurturing an inflexible environment that only changes with absolute demand.
