    Pros

    They hire with litle to no experience in many positions. Prior experience is no necessary. Always positions open.

    Cons

    Most have not had a raise in years. A lot of behind the scenses job band and title manipulation with no communication to the employee. No logical path to promotions. No ergonomic concerns. Tools inhibit prodicutivity. Computers and software are dated. Management are not here for the long term so no local loyalty. What morale? Management makes no attempt to remedy any issues - they have their own goals and it would not include employee retention.

    Advice to Management

    Have some compassion and emphathy. Even a good management book would be better than no experience or education when manageing. Stop the micro manageing that went out a long time ago in an office envronment.
