Advice to ManagementAdvice

Local Senior Managers need to look more closely at what is causing a downturn in office morale: some people are overworked while others hang on without pulling their weight. Accountability needs to be applied across the board to managment and staff with clear and concise expectations and consequences. This means establishing realistic budgets with monitoring. If a project is underfunded don't make the employees carry the burden.

    Pros

    Their managers want to help and care for their employees at most of the segments.

    Cons

    Company has become less technical and now they do cafeteria support and janitorial. In the past their jobs and duties were more focused on innovation and ideas.
