    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the PMP review system, it's not transparent and does not give employees any incentive to become better at their jobs. Rather, the incentive is to begin to do as little as possible because you know there is going to be no reward for hard work. I am looking to leave AU within the next 6 months and go somewhere my efforts are rewarded with a decent paycheck. Also, quit promoting based on education level. A Masters degree is NOT a substitute for common sense. I've never seen so many well-educated idiots in my life.
