    * Don't even get me started on the bluppers on HR's part.
    * Difficult to find parking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a required management training class "2 weeks" in person class to train people managers the Dos and Don't, etc. Fix the on-boarding experience. Every person I spoke with all said it takes 3-6 months just to figure out whats going on. Need some kind of training.
