    They generally do not ask for or require overtime on a regular basis. Just do your job well enough and you will be OK

    Corporate security and political posturing is stifling and makes it painful to be as productive as you would like to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should put a little bit of trust in your employees, learn to communicate, and try to provide a reason for employees to be more motivated.

    Cons

    Managers - for their job security, they don't let employees grow after certain stage.
    Have seen some worse managers who employ divisive strategy to be at the helm.
    Technical people manage some groups and that leads to conflict of interest.
    Information flows in only one direction (upwards).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can easily get rid of 30 percent of managers,with no impact to operations. They can save lot of $s.
