Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in training--they are working on this
You are never going to satisfy everyone!
Some of the people doing the processes should be the ones testing the processes
Accenture doesn't know everything just because they are a consulting firm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salaries do not agree with performance, some of the hardest workers are paid the least; Employees should not be promoted to the next level just because they've been there for years and are falling out of their salary range. Their increase should be given as a one time pay out instead of continuing to increase their salary and promoting them to higher levels.

    Pros

    Team Environment. on lower level Fellow employes work very very hard.

    Cons

    No knowledge on how to become a hi-pot and get developed into a management role. Recent sudden change and lay-offs without a plan to deal with the people remaining is not good leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate and be open on the changes in the company. Talk and communicate to your people. Really develop all your employees, not just hi-pots.
