    - questionable hiring practices;

    Advice to Management

    RMG managers always talk about people being the most important asset of the company. I would go even further, people (their knowledge, skills, and experience) are the only asset that the company has. An inability to manage this asset is shocking. There is no managing going on at all most of the time. It is just all totally haphazard. The company can't retain talent. It appears to me that RMG retains and promotes the mediocre (at best).
