Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    professional environment
    nice, polite culture
    good pay

    Cons

    many layers, hard to get ahead, no clear career path, very very political, passive aggressive culture, ineffective HR department. horrible managers are tolerated for too long, should be quicker to fire people that do not perform or have numerous complaints filed agains them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make the organization flatter so people feel empowered to make decisions! and get rid of ineffective managers.
