Advice to Senior ManagementMark - I know you are a first class President, and the company is lucky to have you. However, at every level below you, it seems as if the company is structured to go everything in the least logical and least efficient way possible. You have some first class talent that is bored out of their minds, and worried that they will not be marketable if they don't leave soon.

You know how passionately and effectively we improved our time card compliance systems? We went to school in order to exert the same passion for engineering.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
