    Everyone in the company is friendly. The managers give you enough flexibility for working schedule. It is easy for team work.

    Raise employees' compensation .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to communicate more with employees to help the business.
    They need to involve employees in decision making. Encourage employees to come up with ideas. Act upon feedback received, or explain why you haven't if you don't. Work as a team with other manager and not let ego's get in the way for the good of the company.
