    3. Management ignores issues and slow to adapt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. If a process is not working, admit it and correct it and move on ... no one will think less of you for admitting something not working as planned.

    Pros

    new campus, that's about it.

    Cons

    decreased PTO policy, then re-instituted company shutdown to basically take back all the PTO; good move for the P&L and Balance Sheet, no so great for employees
    THIRD YEAR in row there wont be any raises
    used to have high bonuses, but not anymore; they are also cutting down on the percentage. Pay is now below average
    management is arrogant, incompetent, and has a sense of entitlement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pick a vision and stick to it, don't go out saying it's all good when it's not.
