    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think there needs to be more taken into account when it comes to promotions and upward mobility. I saw too many cases of great employees going nowhere because training hours weren't correctly entered or promises were not fulfilled. Also, pay scale needs to be adjusted with minimum wage changes. A new employee should not have the same pay as a an employee whose at the company for 2 plus years.
