    The company seems very disorganized for being around for over 100 years. Huge lack of training, at least in my department. There's a huge amount paper work and overhead that encroach on doing your actual job. Management is great but the higher-ups have no idea what's going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out in the field and see how the company actual runs and what your employees actually do.
