    Advice to Management

    Quit and let us just do the job, you are not really needed.
    Do a delivery over a period of a few weeks.

    Start our jobs earlier again.

    Pros

    People at the top really want the change, there is good camaraderie amongst peers, and also with the new graduate programmes, the company is trying to become more professional

    Cons

    Extremely political, cannot push through the really important stuff...progress is difficult as well, as due to the politics, its not always a meritocracy
