Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to provide more work life balance to employees.
Examples:
1. Organise weekly company sports activities like badminton, futsal or tennis.
2. Provide gym center or outside gym memberships to employees.
3. Organise more team building events or get-together activities.
4. Discourage employees to stay back and work too late in the company.

    Pros

    The people are wonderful, decent pay, decent benefits but not worth the hell you will go thru.

    Cons

    Management is abusive. Moral in past five years has gone from great to unbearable. Everyone wants out but all long term employees are so unhappy that they are waiting for their packages. Rumours are they are closing this branch on the electronics side. Computer side is great family Atomsphere because they are run by good management. It really is a shame that the management has done this to a wonderful branch/company...not the same as the old Steve Kaufman days when it truly was a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From the top down, need to change. Worst management team I have ever encountered in my life....corrupt. Listen to the people....they are telling you the truth. Take action before it is too late. You already are a joke in the industry thanks to the last 5 years of corrupt management.

    3. Lost market leadership in several key regions
