    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve your management. Please give priority to your employees. Need to improve the work culture so that office does not feel like a jail. English should be compulsory in all meetings and important sessions.Try to find the skill in your employee and put them in the field they are best and do not force them to do they are not good at, this decreases the productivity.

    Get rid of politics and do something to retain talent, then keep promoting incapable guys

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open when it comes to new ideas and never be satisfied with our position in the market - question things more! Employ more junior people, try 10 different ways of doing things and push the boundaries more.
