    Does not pay market rates
    Management inept-people hired not qualified
    Upper management can't relate to lower level employees

    Many managers are loose cannons-and nothing is done to reign them in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try treating employees with more respect. Give us credit for our knowledge. Stop being accusatory before you know the facts. Try being reasonable. with how things are currently-you are driving good people away.
