    Learning library available to expand your skills ...if you ever had any free time.

    Excessive overtime is always expected. Deadlines are unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher project managers that present resource leveled plans and stop cutting 40% from the timeline but still expecting 110% of the workload to be completed. What happened to work life balance?
